Well as we all know - Jesse Phulparty is going to be on Finlands roster. Though I wonder if he would have been better off as a black ace but I guess in the end for his development the Oilers feel he'd be better off playing on an ice surface and with players he's more comfortable with (language). Looking forward to watching it now just for him (and 'cept for Canada games I'll be cheering for Team Finland).

I thought it a bit strange though when I read the roster for Canada that there was one name missing I was expecting to see on it - here's the roster:

 

1 G Eric Comrie 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in) 79 kg (174 lb) July 6, 1995 (age 21) Canada Winnipeg Jets
4 D Tyson Barrie 1.78 m (5 ft 10 in) 86 kg (190 lb) July 26, 1991 (age 25) United States Colorado Avalanche
5 D Jason Demers 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in) 91 kg (201 lb) June 9, 1988 (age 28) United States Florida Panthers
7 D Josh Morrissey 1.83 m (6 ft 0 in) 88 kg (194 lb) March 28, 1985 (age 32) Canada Winnipeg Jets
9 F Matt Duchene 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in) 91 kg (201 lb) January 16, 1991 (age 26) United States Colorado Avalanche
11 F Travis Konecny 1.78 m (5 ft 10 in) 80 kg (180 lb) March 11, 1997 (age 20) United States Philadelphia Flyers
14 F Sean Couturier 1.91 m (6 ft 3 in) 96 kg (212 lb) December 7, 1992 (age 24) United States Philadelphia Flyers
17 F Wayne Simmonds 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in) 83 kg (183 lb) August 26, 1988 (age 28) United States Philadelphia Flyers
19 D Michael Matheson 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in) 87 kg (192 lb) February 27, 1994 (age 23) United States Florida Panthers
21 F Brayden Point 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in) 75 kg (165 lb) March 13, 1996 (age 21) United States Tampa Bay Lightning
28 F Claude Giroux 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in) 84 kg (185 lb) January 12, 1988 (age 29) United States Philadelphia Flyers
31 G Calvin Pickard 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in) 91 kg (201 lb) April 15, 1992 (age 25) United States Colorado Avalanche
44 D Calvin de Haan 1.85 m (6 ft 1 in) 89 kg (196 lb) May 9, 1991 (age 25) United States New York Islanders
53 F Jeff Skinner 1.8 m (5 ft 11 in) 91 kg (201 lb) May 16, 1992 (age 24) United States Carolina Hurricanes
55 F Mark Scheifele 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in) 89 kg (196 lb) March 15, 1993 (age 24) Canada Winnipeg Jets
71 F Alex Killorn 1.88 m (6 ft 2 in) 88 kg (194 lb) September 14, 1989 (age 27) United States Tampa Bay Lightning
90 F Ryan O'Reilly 1.83 m (6 ft 0 in) 93 kg (205 lb) February 7, 1991 (age 26) United States Buffalo Sabres

Sooooooooooooo, who's missing here? 

You all know who I won't make you read, but I never heard any more about it. Was our former 'superstar' slighted again like he was for the World Cup of Hockey, or was he in fact invited and told them to pound sand as he's sick of being on Canada's "B" team but never even getting a chance to skate with the "A" team. Seguin and Benn aren't on the team either though which I find a bit strange but I do believe they are nursing some injuries IIRC.

Anyway - any roster spots left will be for players who are being elminated. I wonder if Brett Burns will go there?

I'm guessing hall has no interest. They'd take him for sure, he's won gold with them and played terrific. I'm guessing after 7 years he's sick of playing in the also-rans tournament.

I think a lot of them are - like I mentioned Benn and Seguin aren't there either. I am looking forward to watching Pul play though.

It's kinda nice. Usually I pay waaay more attention to these tourneys, as well the junior NA leagues playoffs this time of year (and fly-fishing season wootwoot!) This year, not so much. (Ok well maybe the fishing hehe.) :D

Refreshing change of pace. Pulling for JP and whomever else we may have going to have strong showings.

GO MINI OILERS GO!!

Team Canada is the "Two Time" Defending Champion but TSN was saying US was ranked 1st in the tournament by the IIHF....Looking at their roster above, that ranking could be debated...IMO Russia might have the strongest team....Anyway, U.S. got eliminated today by Finland, one of the weaker teams imo..What gives?....So what criteria do they use to rank the teams?..... .

Like VGK, the outcome of this tournamentent proves this is still a team game.  A bunch of NHL all-stars tossed together doesn't necessarily mean success.  

Not good for a team with Mcd as Captain finishing fourth.  This guys supposed to be a winner?
