I'm almost hoping they solve the lockout after the WJCs because training camps would decimate the Canadian roster. If they are as close to a deal as some people say they are, the season would start around the same time as the WJCs. Would give the Finns, the Czechs, and the Swiss a huge (maybe needed?) boost.

I'm so starved for hockey that I'll get up early in the morning to watch the WJC.

We also have a good line up this season. Much better than the last few years and Subban may end up being the star tender Team Canada's been missing since Carey.

I would think that they would choose a player that has been there before,,,maybe RNH, or another.

Agreed, they usually choose a vet (so to speak) someone who's no stranger to the WJC to wear the "C".

I'll "try" to get up and watch,,the Canadian juniors, but I also want to see how Gally does.

Needless to say,,,afternoon naps may be the order of the day. :(

I shouldn't be concerned about this in 2012 but its refreshing to hear that team Canada and the USA are chartering a plane together and aren't dealing with any commercial flights overseas. This was a small concern/curiosity to me after hearing horror stories of the travel systems over there and the tragedies that have taken place. And I heard this on 690 from Pierre McGuire if anyone was wondering

Defencemen Adam Pelech and Derrick Pouliot and forwards Francis Beauvillier, Sean Monahan and Tyler Graovac were cut, dropping the number of players competing for 23 spots on the team to 32.

Four goalies, 10 defencemen and 18 forwards remain."

For the first time in a very long time, Team Canada have a good selection of talent to chose from.

Can't wait to see who's been chosen to represent Canada this year.

Like i posted in another thread, it's become an xmas tradition in our house.
