World Championships 2012

Postby André on Sat Apr 21, 2012 10:45 am

That time of year again. One shouldn't care and really doesn't anymore these last few years, but then again it is kind of fun =)

Official site:

http://www.iihf.com/channels-12/iihf-world-championship-wc12/home.html

Anyone with a site with the rosters so far? Can't find a good overview anywhere.

Skinner-Tavares-XXX
Benn-Getzlaf-Perry
Kane-RNH-Eberle
Ladd-O'Reilly-Purcell

Bouwmeester-XXX
Phanuef-XXX
Subban-Methot

Ward
Dubnyk

Seriously now, things are looking interesting! Lots of quality NHLers joining their national squad. We could get a mini olympics.

You will probably be able to find that info here in a couple of days:
http://www.iihf.com/channels-12/iihf-wo ... /home.html

But I bet that European hockey countries will broadcast the vast majority of meaningful games. In addition, Europeans are usually offered to buy a pass for streaming all games (+watching archived games) for I believe something like $30 total. Last several years, USA fans were excluded from this deal (but I believe the meaningful games were broadcast on Versus? ).

Naturally, there is always http://forum.wiziwig.eu/ ... :)

My suggested lineup for team Sweden. The below players are all officially in.

Looking very good. Actually excited about the tournament for the first time since...well, since 98 basically =) (altough last year's run with that very young team was fun to watch).

Alfredsson - Zetterberg - Franzén
Landeskog – L. Eriksson - Stålberg
Järnkrok – J. Larsson – Silfverberg
Persson - Kruger - Lundqvist

Pettersson

N. Kronwall – Hjalmarsson
Karlsson – Hedman
Ekholm – S. Kronwall

J. Ericsson, Fernholm, Frogren

Viktor Fasth
Jhonas Enroth

Former Pens draft pick Alexandre Rouleau plays at the WCs for France, if I'm not mistaken.
