It's nice to have all the big ones at once - I don't think Sutter could have picked a better team.

Neither do I, we probly benifitted the most from the NHL lock out; 4 or 5 Canadians would have been playing htere instead of int he World Juniors.

I think Russia might have been worse off - Ovechkin and Malkin both might have been in the NHL. For the USA O'Sullivan, Suter and Fritsche would likely have been in the NHL, and the Rangers might have tried to get Montoya there - not that he was much help for them.

I think if the NHL had been playing, it would have been even more of the Sidney Crosby show then it already was.

True enough, but part when you consider the pressure Crosby was under during hte later games of the tournament I don't think that we would have been able to do as well as we did.

Maybe, but I think he is always the other team's top priority, and he always will be, seems like he thrives under pressure a bit, which is always a good quality.

6 points a game in the QMJHL should be keeping alot of people happy - namely whoever manages to come up with the top pick in the draft, however they decide to do that. Hopefully he ends up in Canada, but I think that may be unlikely.

Dear god, could you imagine if Edmonton pics up another superstar rookie? It'd be the 80's all over again:P

I think Crosby and Schremp would be a devastating combination. With Hemsky hanging around too, it would be amazing, or Torres. Wow.
