Kane Eichel Suter and Larkin are some nice anchors.

Skinner has played for Team Canada in the past. Wonder if the contract puts that on hold?

Reinhart is going and Montour wouldn’t surprise me.

Risto, Dahlin...any other contenders?

It's a shame they couldn't throw one more BC goalie in and had to settle for one from NU instead.

I was meant to be going but NYC trip in November put paid to that. Not expecting Great Britain to win a game at this one and expect us to get relegated but always love doing the worlds. Been to some amazing countries on previous trips.

I would love to attend some year, combined with sightseeing. Prague would be my first choice followed by any Scandinavian city and St Petersburg. 

I've been to Europe a few times but never for hockey. Hmmm.

I've done Austria and Hungary on my trips. Budapest is a beautiful city and well worth a visit. Innsbruck in Austria was also a good trip plus got to see Thomas vanek play for his country.

I am always impressed by the players who say yes to these things and equally not impressed by those who make excuses not to go.

I suspect Skinner's agent has told him not to go. A serious injury could be an issue for their contract so FAs like him get a pass. Anyone else who gets asked should go.

Excellent. Got all our games noted. Germany up first on the 11th. Not holding out much hope for us though. Quick question - who do you follow in UK hockey?

I’m good with this.  Doesn’t the SHL usually play 40 or 50 games?  The first year is a big adjustment in terms of travel and games played in the nhl.  Give him a breather and full offseason to train.  Im sure he will attend in future years (hopefully we’re in the playoffs and he can’t I guess).

Thought that😀.  Flyers for me, though sabres come first by a long shot. Would rather have pete russell than dutes as flyers coach in a heartbeat.
