    I don't think there is any and I emailed Matt Kalman he doesn't think there are any either.

    US got into a good game against a very good Finnish team. US won it in overtime but were given all kinds of trouble. Remember these two names Joni Ortio Goalie in Calgary's system he was on Fiyah and a big thumper who injured two US players Canadien property Joonas Nättinen.

    Sometimes winning ugly against a team you were supposed to blow out early in a tournament is sometimes a good thing no more complacency.

    USA will be just fine, way to much talent there. IMO this is just a little burp on there way to a shot in the gold medal game.

    Who knows I might even be cheering for them in that game, depending who there opponent is of course LOL.

    It's almost saddening to me to see such little interest in this tourny in the US.
    They are the favourites for good reason, (top notch hockey team). I don't get it.
    This thread gets almost no reply as the tourny goes on. So sad.

    In canada win or lose our culture revolves around this at christmas time.

    This tourny is held in buffalo for a reason, Canadian participaction.

    Thank you NHL Network or I would see nothing.

    "Updating an earlier report, U.S. National Junior Team forwards Brock Nelson and Jeremy Morin were on the ice for the team picture Monday, but immediately left prior to the start of practice.

    No one from USA Hockey would provide an update on the injuries, although TSN reported that both players are considered day-to-day with upper-body ailments."

    Not good if these two can't make it to the medal rounds...Frown

    I'd give anything for Couturier to somehow end up on the Bruins on draft day. He's better suited for CJ's style of play than Seguin is. Couturier is bigger, more of a playmaker and is much better defensively. Seguin has more speed, and is a better goal scorer. Couturier is a blend of Joe Thornton and Jordan Staal (in terms of his game/physical makeup).

    Pauly, I play hockey in a men's league in Denver and would say that two-thirds of the guys I play with will be watching this tourney closely.  With the first couple of games being right in the middle of holiday travel people are quiet right now, but it will pick up.  I agree that the US should be more interested, but I also don't really care as long as there is some US fan support there in Buffalo.  

    I love this tournament though.

    I thought maybe Chudinov would be playing for Russia, no?

    Thanks fletch, A canada US final would be great, unless a red hot goalie wants to ruin that for us (and it could happen in a 1 game elimination).
    I just picked up my 50" plasma today, go north america (canada first) of course HAHA

    Next year's WJHC already sold out in Edmonton and Calgary. Is there any question how much some Canadians love their junior hockey, especially this tournament ?

    When the WJC is in North America they were saying Versus that Canadians buy up like 2/3s of the tickets. Good on them and TSN whom have done a great job of really propping this tournament up like they have.

    This coming from Bob MacKenzie via twitter:

    Gabriel Landeskog will not play for SWE tonight vs. RUS. Hurt his ankle in last OHL game and it's getting worse. Getting an MRI.

    Re: 2011 IIHF World Junior Championships

    Watching Canada destroy the Czech's.. Brutal call on Kassian for a good hit on the Czech player, got a 5 minute and game misconduct and now subject to game suspension..Hopefully when they review the game film they will clearly see that it was shoulder, no elbows , to the middle of the chest and the player went down.. I think some of these IIHF rules border on ridiculous.. Just heard that if you hit a player and his head hits the ice it is regarded as a hit to the head and subject to a game misconduct and suspension.. WHAT!!!!

    Expected a much better showing from the Czech's today for sure.. Looks like a Canada/ US final for the grudge match..

    Re: 2011 IIHF World Junior Championships

    Here's a little bit of (useless ?) info from my local paper I'd like to pass along in regards to the WJHC held in Buffalo.

    Traffic for Sunday's game to cross the 3 bridges was a 2 - 2 1/2 hour wait just to cross into the U.S. Then there was the traffic to deal with in and around the arena on top of that . The lineup stretched up to 4 kms. long at the Peace Bridge . Besides the hockey , the Buffalo Bills had a home game and there were Boxing day deals which brought out the shoppers.

    This morning I went to Buffalo. I arrived at the Bridge and 10 minutes later I was passing by the HSBC arena.

    Once they got to the HSBC they had another surprise . The parking lots around the arena which normally charge $10-15 were charging $60-70 . Apparently they were jacking their prices up just for the Canada game because of the amount of people that would be attending. As these people came out to their cars to leave the price had gone back down to normal prices for the later game.

    It would have been nice to attend these games but after reading this I'm happy with the remote in my hand instead.

    So he got 2 games ?  Did I miss something here ?


    Canadian forward Zack Kassian was assessed a further one game suspension by the IIHF for his hit to the head and neck area on Czech forward Petr Senkerik. The additional game was handed out by Dan Marouelli, the IIHF`s appointed Disciplinary Single Judge.

    In making his assessment, Marouelli analyzed the play on DVD from every available angle. As well, he examined the medial reports, discussed the play with on-ice officials, and met with the referee supervisor.

    Marouelli affirmed that the on-ice officials followed correct protocol by discussing the incident while Senkerik was being treated on ice by doctors. It was after this discussion that the referees decided to assess a five-minute major and match penalty.

    The IIHF has very specific rules regarding dangerous hits. These are not limited just to the head but to the neck area as well, which is defined by that part of the body above the collarbone and shoulder pads (i.e., unprotected areas).

    People leave their cars unsupervised in Buffalo?  That's not safety.  Patrick Kane might think it's a cab.

    Fletch, Chudinov's too old.  He was already 20 when they drafted him.

    US and Canada crushing their opponents that head on collision will more than likely happen. The Swedes should give the Canadians a test tomorrow but nothing more. Don't really want the US to face Finland in the elimination round they are tough to play against.
