Are they selecting new rosters?   Or keeping the same and picking up where they left off? 

Will the 2023 WJC happen at Christmas time... only 4 months after the 2022 event?    How much will the rosters change?

I think rosters can be modified from last Xmas, and yes, 2023 tourney scheduled for this winter.

I don’t think Power is playing.

Its pointless now everybody should be getting ready for next season

Wouldn't playing in a prestigious hockey tournament against your peers be considered “getting ready”? 🤔

Its not a summer event its not going to have that "it" buzz like it does after Christmas.

I can almost Guarantee its going to be a flop and going to be  The least watched world juniors ever

Really doubt that.  Most of the rest of the world didn't even know the tournament was happening prior to the '00's and even less of it cared.  Ratings will be down in Canada as it's coming right after black fly season & right before mosquito season but it'll still draw more eyeballs than it did back in the '80's.

Will see.. I'll watch but it will feel like another worlds tournament

Hockey news is scarce right now and actual games are not happening. As a fan of the game I will watch as much as possible but it won’t have the same feel as Christmas/New Year.

The Hockey Canada scandals will make it awkward to put a positive spin on the tournament from this country’s perspective.

What Sabres prospects are expected to play in August in these games?  I looked for rosters and didn't see anything updated.

I assume Power and Savoie are not playing?

Rosen, Nadeau, Kulich, Östlund, Bloom, Lindgren???

What is it with international sport organizations and unnavigable websites?  IIHF is almost as bad as FIFA and IOC. (Maybe there's no room for graft in the website industry?)  And put the freaking rosters up already!

Apparently ticket sales are way way down and some people with tickets say they won't even go due to the scandal. This was on the CBC news last night. At the moment, it looks like it might just be a total flop. 

Doesn’t help that the tournament is falling within Edmonton’s 3 weeks of the year that aren’t early winter, deep winter, late winter, or mud season.

true. Klondike Days are just ending. That's just about the only other event they have. It is the one season the snowbirds are actually in town though.
