As for the actual World Cup of Hockey, it starts in 9 days. Canada is obviously the heavy favorite, but I'm excited to see what Team USA and the North America U23 team do throughout the tournament. I'm also excited to see what Shayne Gostisbehere and Sean Couturier (North America U23), Mark Streit and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare (Team Europe), and Radko Gudas, Michal Neuvirth, and Jake Voracek (Czech Republic) will do. I think the North America team will surprise some people, as young guns like Ghost, Jack Eichel and Connor McDavid look to make some noise versus their older counterparts.
P.S. Me IRL:
