2019 IIHF World Championship.png

 

May 10 - 26

 

There's a good chance there will be a few Canucks playing.  Horvat, Boeser, Pettersson, Marky.  I expect lots of roster announcements as the NHL regular season wraps up. 

 

 

May 10 - Finland vs Canada
May 12 - Great Britain vs Canada
May 13 - Slovakia vs Canada
May 16 - Canada vs France
May 18 - Canada vs Germany
May 20 - Canada vs Denmark
May 21 - Canada vs U.S.A.

 

May 23 - Quarterfinals
May 25 - Semifinals
May 26 - Bronza and Gold medal games

 

I love international hockey.  I can't wait.

Pretty sure we won't see McDavid as he seems to have been playing 30 minutes a night for the Coilers lol. Hope Horvat goes - he has had a great year.

Why can't this event be in Canada?

It was in 2008.  Halifax and Quebec co-hosted the tourney.

 

The problem is with NHL cities and playoff dates.  The host is picked far in advance.  Switzerland hosts next year, Belarus and Latvia the year after.  There's no way to guarantee that any particular NHL team will not be in the playoffs three years from now.

Because it does beter in Europe.  We get the WJHC most years for the same reason.

Edler should rest and sign a team-friendly contract.  He has missed too much in the past few years.  The rest should go.

Usually, this is not a pending UFA-friendly tournament, I doubt he goes.
