Canadas 2007/2008 World Junior Team


Recommended Posts

We all know 2005 was a unbelievable team, But 2007 was more memorable to me. The character of players on this team was unreal, Stephan Legein was awesome during the tournaments.

What was everybodys most memorable year ? Here was the 2007 lineup...

Giroux - Stamkos - Marchand

Turris - Tavares - Simmonds

Legin - Sutter - Boychuk

Gillies - Halischuk - Matthias

Doughty - Alzner

Subban - Hickey

Schenn - Godfrey

I prefer to remember the 2008/2009 World Jr. Team.  Watching a Canuck prospect lead not only team Canada but the entire tourny in scoring was just awesome.  Too bad that player is now a Sabre :( Edit- future Canuck draft pick and current Canuck Jordan Schroeder also made his played in that Tourny and had 11pts in 6 games.

Aside from 2005 which was the most stacked team in history, the 2007 and 2009 teams were my favourites. 2007, I just thought the team had great character (like Luc Bourdon RIP). 2009 was absolutely stacked and full of highlights.

Who can forget Price playing out of his mind or Toews in the shootout in '07, or Tavares carrying the team against the States in '09, and of course Eberle with 5.4 left against the Russians in the semis. Or Pierre freaking out over Tokarski's save (honestly, the reaction > the save :lol:)

I love the World Juniors. If the lock-out goes longer, at least it's going to be one epic tournament this year.

MacKinnon is good, but he slots behind Couturier, Strome and Scheifele. Rarely is it that 16 y/o's get those top minutes, even Crosby was behind Bergeron/Getzlaf in 04/05. I'd like to see Huberdeau - RNH - Couturier, Rattie - Strome - Scheifele.
