Rather presumptuous isn't this?  Do you know Team Canada's policies?  The fact that both players chose to sit out when given a choice by the coach and that the coach even came up to them about it seems to indicate they are all okay with this.  But somehow, from your chair, this is all wrong?

 

When the coach makes a suggestion that is more of an  explicit request over something that has nothing to do with anything that was done wrong then this manufactured scene is a bush league act of exhibiting authority over the players. He was trying to show a hard arse authority over players who are vying to make the team and earn playing time. To me this seems like old school bull shiiit in order to make an impression.  Call me unimpressed.

Just to add to staged nature.  Cozens and Dach are both WHL vets and the coaching is from Lethbridge in the WHL.

The head coach is from the Ottawa 67s in the OHL.

This is not worthy of discussion. Send it to the political forum. 

There will be no politics coming from this man... But when the board has turned to a solid discussion on players being "late" to practice, we need some damn hockey

No doubt. Although I’m worried we’re about to hear about a labor dispute rather than on ice hockey.

God I hope not, 2020 needs to end with some good ol fashioned Eichel Magic.

Kinda looks like a way to give two important guys receiving treatment a day off while trying to set a tone with the bubble guys.

dylan cozens is absolutely flying in the team canada selection camp game. he controls the game every single time he steps onto the ice. pure dominance. wish i could say the same thing about quinn in this game...

Yea, I think the talent is there with Quinn but Cozens has that confidence to just dominate. Quinn may get there, we will have to see.

Just watched the first on delay. I didn't think Cozens was dominant, but he certainly is noticeable. He's just bigger and faster and more advanced than pretty much everyone else so he draws the eye.

He also made two very nice set-up plays on the PP — one a behind-the-back drop pass on the tape, the other, a great hesitation to open the lane before he threaded a perfect dart across the slot to set up the one-timer. Each of which showed the type of playmaking ability critics suggest he doesn't have.

Quinn is much less noticeable in that the puck isn't on his stick nearly as much. The one time he carried it on an exit he skated into traffic and coughed it up for a scoring chance the other way. He did however have two very good scoring chances of his own: a quick snapper from the right circle and a well-timed deflection through the slot. He seems positionally sound and goes to the dirty areas and was relatively successful on the PK.

EDIT: And then Cozens opens the 2nd with a brilliant homerun pass from the defensive slot to send McMichael in on the breakaway.

So was-/is something wrong with Cozens. He didn't have a shift for at least the 2nd half of the 2nd. Didn't see him on the bench either for most of it, although he finally showed up standing down by the backup late.

And Cozens answers the very next shift with a beautiful set-up to Seth Jarvis. 4-1 White.then he blocks a shot for good measure.

Seth Jarvis you say? The player we should have drafted at 8.

Kirby Dach is the best player on the ice.

I'd hope so. He played against NHL talent last year.

Not from what I've seen today.

I mean I haven't been watching him as closely as Quinn and Cozens obviously, but he's not stood out.

Really, none of the 2020 picks have, not even Byfield.

It's true what they say about this being a 19-year-old tourney.

Along with Dach the other stud has been Bowen Byrum.
