He plays against the other teams' best forwards, and on a not so good team, that is bound to happen


Also there are two -8s and a -9. So not the team worst. Also the vast majority of the players on Sudbury are negative.

YES!! HE GOT THE INVITE!

Edit: just in case anyone thinks I'm being over-enthusiastic its because I also just won $50 on a bet over this matter :D

I'm happy he got the invite, but do you really think he will outplay Dumba,Hamilton,Harrington,Murphy,Reinhart,Rielly, and the others.

The 6 players I listed will probably be the top 6.

An accomplishment just getting the invite. I didn't check but he's probably the lowest draft seclection among all the drafted invitees. Whoever pushed for him on the Nuck's scouting staff should get promoted.

Thrilled for Corrado. Even if he makes the third pair it would be a huge accomplishment

Reilly - Hamilton
Dumba - Murphy
Corrado - Reinhart

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Congrats to Corrado on the invite.

He's up against some stiff competition, but getting the invite at least gives him a shot.

Hopefully team Canada's scouts liked what they saw when he was paired with Hamilton in the Subway series. I think his best bet is to beat out Harrington or Dumba for that final spot. Or possibly making the team as a spare.

You guys are all forgetting a key part of the WJHC.

You are allowed to dress 20 skaters.... so that means 13F and 7D.

Being invited over some of those other players is an honour in itself.
I am almost certain he wont make the team over guys like Rielly, Pouliot, Dumba, Murphy, or Reinhart (plus the guys who made the team last year) in the end, but it is still a good sign of things to come.

Franky looked better paired with Hamilton than Harrington in the Subway series. I think they would have won the game they lost if he was still paired with Hamilton on the last shift of the third. Harrington totally blew his coverage of the winning goal scorer and it was game over.
For me Corrado beats out Harrington to make the team.

Harrington made the team last year, and has improved his defensive game a lot in the past year.
To me, he's a lock to make it.

Harrington's a returnee though, and that won't fly with Hockey Canada's philosophy.

Corrado's hard pressed to make it, but like some have said, it's a step just to get the selection. He's still so young. Definitely will have a chance next year.

He'll be 20 in March, which means he will be too old to play at the next WJC.

Next year he won't - he will be ineligible as he will be 20.

That Canada team also only won a bronze though.

Nobody should be a lock from last year IMO.

To make the squad he has to be in the top 8, to get playing time top 6 or 7. I think Corrado can certainly beat out Pouliot, Pelech, Sproul and Wotherspoon. I'd probably even take him over Oullet but I guess I'm bias. I think he has a real shot at this thing.

Ummm Strome?!?! OF course MacKinnon, Drouin and Shinkaruk should also be included. That top 6 is pretty much set.

Wow. I'm shocked at how much people are underestimating Harrington. He was AWESOME in last years world juniors. He didn't put up many points but he was easily their best defensive d man last world juniors. Like jager bomb said Harrington is a lock, it's not even up for discussion. Dumba IMO could be the guy Corrado beats out to get onto the team. Or Corrado could end up being the 7th d man.

Either way I'm pumped to see Corrado get an invite.

People are underestimating how well Hamilton and Corrado gelled. Hockey Canada has the sense to know that you pick the best lines, not just the best individual players. I suspect (and hope) that Corrado gets in based on his skills as well as that chemistry.

Frankie has a good chance to make this team. I am shocked that Ceci didn't even get a look.

For me Corrado beats out Harrington to make the team.


Um... The game-winning goal in that game was scored by none other than our prospect, Frank Corrado... And Canada won it 2-1 on that tally...

Also, Harrington captained that team over Hamilton, and is pretty much a lock for this year's squad and will most likely wear a letter on his chest too.


I think the only players that should be locks are Huberdeau, Scheifele, Jenner and RNH. The rest is just a crap shoot


Ummm Strome?!?! OF course MacKinnon, Drouin and Shinkaruk should also be included. That top 6 is pretty much set.


Dougie Hamilton and Scott Harrington should be a lock too. I wouldn't say MacKinnon, Drouin and Shinkaruk are locks either, especially with RNH in the picture.

Huberdeau - RNH - Scheifele => This will be the 1st line. Strome will be a lock for the 2nd line center, and Jenner as the 3rd line.

Shinkaruk will definitely not make the roster IMO - too many talented more experienced players on this team - and he'd have to make it over Drouin too. Not happening.

I think MacKinnon will be the RW on the 2nd line, which would help the case for Drouin since the two play together. Drouin's main competition will be Ritchie, who Strome plays with.

Wow. I'm shocked at how much people are underestimating Harrington. He was AWESOME in last years world juniors. He didn't put up many points but he was easily their best defensive d man last world juniors. Like jager bomb said Harrington is a lock, it's not even up for discussion. Dumba IMO could be the guy Corrado beats out to get onto the team. Or Corrado could end up being the 7th d man.

Either way I'm pumped to see Corrado get an invite.


I also think Harrington is very underrated and I thought he was our go-to shutdown defenseman who had showed some offensive upside.

My post from before hasn't changed with the roster announcement. I see Hamilton, Harrington, Rielly, Murphy (only because of Spott) and Ouellet as being pretty much locks for the team. That means Canada takes 2 of Corrado, Dumba and Reinhart (I see the others as being a step behind.) If they take their Super Series play into account there is no way Dumba will play ahead of Corrado.

My complete team would be roughly:

Huberdeau - Nugent-Hopkins - Scheifele
Rattie - Strome - Ritchie
Douin - MacKinnon - Monahan
Danault - Jenner - Wilson
Hudon

Hamilton - Rielly
Ouellet - Harrington
Corrado - Reinhart
Murphy (PP)

Subban
Binnington (any of the 3 remaining goalies could easily take this)

Strome completely slipped my mind when I was typing that post :P But yeah if Mackinnon and Drouin make the top six that would be deadly

Huberdeau - RNH - Scheifele
