Re: World Juniors

But I thought College hockey players were by far superior to Major Junior players? Shouldn't Team USA win every year then? Haha

Re: World Juniors

Team Canada U18 and below teams are assembled 14 days prior to games while the USA teams play together in the USHL all season. Another sign that Canadian Hockey is much more advanced than US.

Wait...what?

USNTDP are 16 and 17 year olds.

How many kids from this year's WJ roster are currently in the USNTDP?

Answer: None.

******* fool.

Re: World Juniors

Apparently you haven't been watching. NCAA players are mostly 21-24 these days and not eligible to play WJ.

Or, they only play NCAA when they are 18 and 19 and then go pro, and choose to not play WJ.

Take a look at the USA WJ roster the last couple of years. Some years stacked, some years not so much.

Re: World Juniors

You can say the same about the top Major Junior guys in the NHL who dont even play for team Canada. Comparing apples to apples though, the Major Junior players are much more skilled than the college players. The proof is in the ressults. Sorry man.

Re: World Juniors

Dude, your embarrassing yourself. Go away. You literally know nothing about this topic.

Re: World Juniors

But I thought CHL hockey players were by far superior to NCAA players? Shouldn't Team Canada win every year then? Haha

Re: World Juniors

You folks are clueless, the World Juniors is played on an Olympic size sheet where there is plenty of room to be skilled, also the NCAA layers that participate are only Freshman playing in an older league (NCAA), more similar to the NHL game. There is no comparison between the CHL and NCAA, CHL teams would be destroyed.

Re: World Juniors

Team Canada is essentially a major junior team. They would get destroyed? Talk about clueless. Check out their results pal. Many gold medals. How about the USA college kids? Haha

Re: World Juniors

U have no clue. The WJ is not a good gage to judge leagues. CHL is littered with 16/17 year old players throughout their teams. The Canadian team players like the US WJ team are mostly 19 and sometimes 18. These are the older kids in the CHL. The US kids on WJ team are on the other hand the younger kids on college teams... College teams as a whole are much better due to age and strength entering the conversation.

Sometimes it's best to just keep your mouth shut and not say something stupid.... guess you can't control yourself... you an idiot...

Re: World Juniors

You are the clueless one saying the USA kids are just freshmen. Wrong.
Also, at the same age level team Canada (Major Junior players) dominates team USA (D1 college players). I know you dont like this, but FACT.

Re: World Juniors

Each have won 3 in past 10 years. Not dominant wingnut.

Re: World Juniors

Wow, yeah the USA college kids are so much stronger than the Major Junior kids. Lol:joy:

Re: World Juniors

WJ U20 not always played on Olympic size sheets. Depends on host and facilities used. Many NHL arenas have been used in games throughout the years and none are Olympic size

Re: World Juniors

They win it a lot more than the US collegw kids do. Dummy
