RNH named captain.

Makes sense, I guess.

I thought it'd be a player coming back. Maybe Strome.

that's who it should have been. Or Hamilton  :-\

Kadri had a very big role in 09/10 but that year Taylor Hall got all the attention. I think Kadri was as good if not better than Hall was... buuut I could be a tad biased.

Always seems if this team wins silver, everyone forgets who did what.

But I'm not sure if Kadri was expected to be one of the big performers on the team. Pogge/Rielly were thought to be big parts from the get go.

He was on the 1st line for a good portion of the tournament. ... just sayin'. 

Expected to lead the team? No.. it was all Taylor Hall and Eberle talk going in.

Sure, but they usually tend to go into the tournament and kind of let the lines play out, don't they? Don't get me wrong, I agree Kadri played well I just remember it being a bit of a surprise compared to the more-hyped Hall.

Didn't Brayden destroy it that year?

No, that was the year after. He was pretty invisible the year he and Kadri were both on the roster - or, at least, I felt he was. He certainly did not stand out.

A look at the World Juniors broadcast schedule shows that 4 of 5 of Canada's round robin games start at 4:00 AM, with the 5th starting at 8:30 AM. Some elimination games also start at 4:00 AM, with the final being played at 7:30 AM. Oof.

It is only exhibition play, but Canada has to be a lot more disciplined moving forward in this tournament. I'm sure they'll figure it out. 2-2 in middle of the second.

Subban did not look good on that one. Im guessing he hasn't secured the starting job just yet.

Good lord why does Oulette cross check his man with 5min left while down? Stupid. We don't look very good in this game.

Just selfish play right now. They've got a lot of work to do.

And here's a penalty. Awful.

RNH with a slash behind the play with his team trailing. Well done, captain.
