Im hoping for some draft eligibles to make it, Drouin is a dream but Mackinnon and Monahan have a shot. Also i think Percy would have been a good guy for a bottom pairing but hes not invited... Rielly should Qb the umbrella PP with Murphy and Nuge on his wings. That should be a fun power play to watch. Not only are Huberdeau and Schieffle and Strome near superstar status in this tournament but Nugent Hopkins could be the best talent to ever play in this tournament, watch the amount of points Nugent Hopkins puts up. Along with Murphy Rielly and Hamilton should tear up this tournament in terms of skill. The bottom 6 looks to be phenominal as well with guys like Jenner, Mcneil, Wilson Rattie who is a hell of a player where ever he plays. Plus Mackinnon should be able to light the tournament up if he makes it. This is going to be the best team in years... I cant see this team losing...

The last time the team was so deep Crosby was the only draft eligible player to make it.

I'd expect MacKinnon to be on the team, maybe Monahan, but he's a bit of a longer shot, especially since the top 6 is gonna be filled with NHL ready guns (RNH, Huberdeau, Scheifele, Strome etc.)

Mackinnon should make it on the second line wing, Monahans big enough to get a 3rd line role though. But your right hes more of a long shotter.

First Red vs. White game, only Red vs. White game before cuts.

Team Red wins 3-1

Goals by Danault, Corrado, and Nugent-Hopkins (EN) for Team Red; Hunter Shinkuruk scored for Team White.

MacKinnon was reported to look real good, but couldn't finish.

In the inter-period shootout Malcolm Subban stopped all five of his shooters.

Highlights: http://watch.tsn.ca/...4932#clip824932

Extended Highlights: http://watch.tsn.ca/...4931#clip824931

Full Shootout: http://watch.tsn.ca/...4957#clip824957

Article: http://www.tsn.ca/wo...tory/?id=411464

Team Canada faces off against University teams today and tomorrow. Cuts could happen today, final cuts happen tomorrow.

Yeah, Ritchie's making a case for himself. He'll make the team no doubt.

I'll look forward to seeing him plaster some Americans and Russians.

5 players cut.

No World Jr's for Monahan, Beauvillier, Graovac, Pelech and Pouliot.

Final cuts should be made tonight.

The only real surprising cuts were Wilson, Macneill and Corrado.

Other than that not a bad looking bunch.

I can't believe they cut Corrado, he was going at a goal a game in the scrimmages, and he's a friggin D-man.

The Oilers have another Capt. Canada.

Nugent-Hopkins is given the C for the World Jr's.

Defenseman Scott Harrington (London Knights, Pittsburgh Penguins) and Forward John Huberdeau (Saint John Sea Dogs, Florida Panthers) take the A's.

It makes sense in that Wotherspoon and Reinhart are probably better defensive minded guys, but I would have kept him over Murphy at least if seeing as they already have a pretty well offensive minded top 4...
