    Bruins @ 2012 World Juniors

    Would love to see the thoughts of the CHL/prospect watchers. Many of the stars of today are alumni of the tournament and, personally, I love the World Juniors and watch it closely every year. Great tournament to see the most high-end junior talent from each country in pressure situations.

    I particularly love when Bruin prospects are involved and we've seen some solid performances too (Bergeron and Marchand particularly stand out).

    Who do posters here think we'll get to see?

    I'd think Koko will definitely be playing for Russia and Dougie is a lock for Canada's blueline, but Canada is always deep, is there a chance he gets bumped? Can Spooner crack the forward group -- almost impossible at every level?

    Will Jared Knight make team USA?

    Who else?

    Don't know if this will be Russia's final roster or not, Bim might know...

    San, I was hoping Ferlin would crack the USA roster since he apparently had a good summer evaluation camp and is also playing great for Cornell(5gp-8pts). Here's what Hockey's Future had to say about him...

    Ferlin attended the USA U-20 tryout camp this summer and had a breakout performance. He produced offensively, he was responsible defensively, he played physical and moved his feet. Ferlin actually made it past every cut, outlasting several more heralded prospects. He heads to Cornell in the fall to begin his collegiate career.

    I think we went through the odds back in the summer, but basically yes, I think Spooner has a shot with many of the potential returnees and competition having ended up in the NHL - RNH, Couturier, Connolly, Johansen....  It still won't be easy with Scheifele, Strome, and Huberdeau competing for scoring centre spots.  I won't be surprised if he's cut, but the most he looks like a guy coming in smoking hot, the more likely they can't keep him off the roster.

    Hamilton wasn't a lock in the summer - again, returnees, and a number of 17 year olds who will push to get a look like Murray and Dumba.  Murray in particular is likely to get at least a depth spot given his international record to date; Hockey Canada likes to reward its own.  The injury to Murphy, Gudbranson sticking in Florida, and most importantly Hamilton's torrid start mean he's probably in.

    No idea what USA Hockey does with Knight.  No idea on Ferlin either. Wonder if the hissy fight with Knight/USA Hockey is done. 

    I would assume Khokhlachev is in; that's the assumption about the Russian subway series roster from people I know who are involved in Jr. as billets, sponsors, assistants.
