Not sure why you need to limit the list to five ... its seems rather arbitrary. The important concept is the one you have stressed: You need youth to build on. I would add that you also need a steady stream of youth. The salary cap requires that a significant portion of your team be cheap (but good). Look at all of the Cup winners since the lookout. They have a core of well paid, very strong veterans, and, most importantly, young, cheap talent that can compete.

Agree ... he is the real deal. You don't lose over 440 man-games to injury and still challenge. Maybe they believe they can influence the contract negotiations. ;)

I am so glad the DD to World Championship nonsense is not being proposed on this forum. I hear it far too much on the radio and it is beyond comprehension. There are at least 11 centers better than DD on the non-playoff teams who are better. Luckily, the Team Canada brass are smarter (or less invested) than too many people in the Montreal Sports Media.

There is still a good chance that there will be a "buy out" linked to the new CBA (just like last time). I believe the HABS have been planning for this.

Team Canada invites are not public yet. Just a quick thought. Subban should be invited, Georges is a maybe and DD is a definite NO. There are at least 11 centers ahead of DD. There would have to be a lot of injuries for an average C like him to make it.

I still think it will be 1st overall ... The fix is in.

Got it ... Thanks.

I take that back ... NHL.COM now shows the Leafs in 26th. I am more confused now. Not sure which tiebreaker the Ducks won.

Not according to NHL.COM. They are tied with the Ducks, but win the tie-breaker based on their win over the Ducks this year. However, I am afraid the fix is in with the CBC talking all night about the Leafs top five pick. Looks lke the Leafs win the lottery and move up to second overall ... IN FRONT OF THE HABS! I'm crying already. ;)

Can't believe I am going to build upon this ... Think of how much better it works if this is only done during the second period. The "extra" attacker comes off the bench at the other team's blue line. Hockey's new equivalent of the football sleeper play. ;)
