After watching the WJHC loss to the US where Canada got stomped 5-1, it really appears Canada could have used a more stable presence on D, who wasn't flashy but got the job done.

I would've loved to see Corrado on the WJHC roster.

By most accounts his performance at the camp merited selection. We`ve seen this sort of thing happen to less heralded players before at past World Jr selection camps. But yeah, I`m positive he would have been a great deal more effective over there than, say, Ryan Murphy, to name one obvious example.

That's on Steve Spott... With the amount of talent he was given, he had no plan to respond to the American's speed.

Not to mention, he took his boy Ryan Murphy instead of choosing the best squad...

Corrado should have made it - not that it would have made a difference - Spott's a horrible coach.

Reilly is one dimensional, he can cover some of his d-zone mistakes with his speed, but still.
Murphy is one dimensional as well. However the dimension he's best at was non-existent in the entire WJC process.
Reinhart honestly was not impressive at all. Average defensively and took bad penalties.

Corrado and Hamilton could have been a solid shut-down pairing. Or Corrado and Wotherspoon, both play a 2-way game.

One man wouldn't have made a difference, to be honest. The whole team was at fault, which means the system they played was suspect - that's on the coach. IMO Spott was Team Canada's kryptonyte.

If anything, I'm glad it showed that Spott has no eye for talent and the game, so I'm glad Corrado wasn't a part of the failed experiment. He's coming along just fine on his own right now.

In that case, how bad does it look on Spott now that he got the roster he wanted and still couldn't come through? Even in previous years, at least they would still reach the final... Spott sucks. If anything, this should be a wake-up call for Hockey Canada - and a long time coming too, if this history of politics is extensive. It's only too bad that Corrado had to be a victim of that before the necessary changes are made.

You may get your wish. Dan Murphy mentioned on Twitter that Corrado may get the call to come to Canucks training camp.


Dan Murphy@sportsnetmurph

#wolves coming for #canucks camp - Tanev, Connauton, Ebbett, Kassian and Schroeder. Frankie Corrado may get the call.

Two quick goals scored by Sudbury at the end of the 2nd. Both even strength, Corrado now a +2.


Another note, Sudbury's goalie Joel Vienneau has really picked up his game this season, hes 20 years old so he wont be able to play in the CHL next year. Be interesting to see what happens to him. Him and Corrado have been taking a shackling all season, and both have handled it well considering.

Ryan Murphy is just an overrated D-man. Canada lost because of this guy.

I think Corrado would be better served to spend the rest of the year in the OHL and maybe be a call-up to the Chicago Wolves if they make the playoffs (obviously the Sudbury Wolves' season would have to be over).

He is doing very well in the OHL, but not completely dominating the league. I don't think his development would be stunted if he finishes the season down there. Let him continue to gain confidence in the OHL rather than be thrown into a pressure situation in a shortened situation where every game is more meaningful because there is less room for error.

OMG we could've had McKeown!

I think Virtanen was a terrible pick given that he's out for 6 months which will hinder his development. You don't pick someone at #6 under that circumstance, along with the fact that he was given a 3/5 IQ (aka he's dumb). 

God dammit Benning. WHY VIRTANEN? Terrible move.

^^ I agree. His confidence is at an all time high right now. Let him ride it out for as long as he can.

He's the team captain, and he has a chance to help lead his team into the playoffs. It wouldn't do him any good to deny him of that experience, only to be a spare D-man on the Canucks.

Hopefully he has a decent run with the Wolves, and then he can go play in Chicago to end the season. That way he'll know going into the summer what to expect playing in the AHL next season.

Corrado has been in OHL trade talks for several weeks. He is a likely candidate to be traded before the deadline Jan 10. He actually would have been traded already. He was offered to Owen Sound but the player coming back refused to report to Sudbury.

Corrado will not be with Sudbury for much longer and Sudbury will not go far in the playoffs. He will go to a contender who will try to go for a long run in the playoffs and hopefully the memorial cup. It's only a question of who and when.

Can anyone think of any contenders who could potentially lose a Dman thanks to the start of the NHL season (i.e. London Knights losing Scott Harrington to the Pittsburgh Penguins or Niagra losing Dougie Hamilton to the Bruins)?

I guess no OHL team will be eager to trade for Corrado until its determined if he is going to play for the Canucks or not.

I doubt either of those guys play in the NHL this season.

But if Hamilton does play for the Bruins, the Ice Dogs would definitely be in search of a top defenceman, since they've got a good chance to take a run this season.

I don't think the Penguins would keep Harrington either, but it would be cool if Corrado could go to the London Knights. That team is unreal this season.

I've seen Barrie Colts (who are tops in the same division as the Wolves) suggested as interested in a trade for Corrado, but not sure how valid that is.
