Really looking forward to this tournament, which will take the malaise of the typical pre season away.

I m really looking forward to watching Team North America play, should be amazing to watch the future superstars of the NHL all on one team.

The betting favorites are naturally Canada and we will cheer them on, but I would love to see this North America team take it down..Would be a huge upset obviously.

Should be some very exciting hockey..


Some of those early pre season games are going to have some ugly rosters..

I might move the swedes one line closer to Canada but otherwise I think your analysis is right on the money, dubes.

I think you guys are underestimating the Russians..The forwards might be the best of the tourney, however their defence is nowhere near Canada obviously..Goaltending might be an issue too..However it wouldnt surprise if anyone of these teams won it all..

Maybe the exception of Team EuroTrash

Thoughts on Team NA at 16-1?

Keep in mind, its a 1 game do or die in the semi's.
I think this tourney is way more wide open than the usual "Canada will win cause its hockey"

I think at the end of a season, young guns tend to be less effective, they don't know how to manage the long season. But at the start of the season? Takes vets a while to get their legs. I like North America at 16-1. If they play uptempo, they're going to make opponents miserable. (Cue NA to go 0 for the tournament).

Hmm... problem was just that I hadn't updated my NHL app in a while.

Also interesting... my Rogers internet plan gave me 15/16 NHL Gamecentre for free, but was quiet on 16/17. I assumed I wouldn't get it.

I log into my Rogers account, see that it shows that I have 15/16 Gamecentre, so I click "Watch" just to see what happens, page opens up telling me that I get it free and that it's activated for 16/17. Yay.

Now I've got the game on. :) Well, the intermission.
