World Juniors

12/30/2011 at 7:56pm EST

Just a couple of comments on the IIHF World Juniors so far.

Team USA has been very disappointing. After a good first game against Denmark (winning 11-3) it’s been pretty sparse for USA junior hockey. After loosing 4-1 to Finland, USA lost to the Czech Republic today and are done for the tournament. Not good.

Every time I watch the Juniors I wonder why the NHL doesn’t go to the modified icing rule they use.

Petr Mrazek (Detroit Red Wings) has looked pretty darn good. Even in the lose to Team Canada he looked decent. Hopefully the Wings have their goaltender for the future. Or at least a solid back-up (think Rask in Boston).

Canada is the cream of the crop again this year. Yea, that was obvious.
