Breakdown

Cream of the crop: 

USA

usa wjc.jpg

The Americans are betting favorites to repeat as champions this year, but they will have a tough task in doing so with both Canada and Finland in their group. In addition to returning a number of players from last year’s championship team, the United States roster also boasts a slew of new talent. This mix of talent and experience should be helpful for the Americans throughout the tournament. BC and BU goalies, Joseph Woll and Jake Oettinger return from last year’s team and will likely split time backstopping the Americans.  On the defensive end, 2nd and 3rd round picks, Ryan Lindgren and Adam Fox are back, this time as assistant captains. However, the blueliner with the most intrigue surrounding him will be Quinn Hughes. The University of Michigan product is an A rated player by Central Scouting and a likely first round draft prospect in 2018. Despite the presence of a number of 2017 2nd round picks on the blue line (including Andrew Peeke and Dylan Samberg), the excitement surrounding this team is centered more around its wealth of talent on offensive. Returning players, Joey Anderson and Kiefer Bellows, will lead the frontline of the United States attack as captain and assistant captain respectively. Boston University star Patrick Harper will also be making his second appearance on the USA World Junior team as well. Yet the story of this World Junior Championships will be how their young forwards acquit themselves. The WJC is a great place to evaluate talent, and all eyes will be on how 2018 draft first round draft prospect Brady Tkachuk handles himself. Similarly, general managers, scouts, and fans alike will be watching closely to see how former first round draft picks Casey Mittelstadt, Kailer Yamamoto, Ryan Poehling, Logan Brown, Josh Norris, Riley Tufte, Trent Frederic, and Max Jones perform. You can take your pick as to who, out of this immensely talented bunch, you think might lead the US in scoring. But the smart money would be on Mittelstadt, the 8th overall pick in last year’s draft. This plethora of talent up front is the main reason the US open as favorites in this tournament.

Canada

canada wjc.jpg

Normally the favorite, Canada enters the 2018 World Juniors as Vegas’s second best option. That is not to say that this team is not talented. The United States roster is loaded with offensive talent, whereas the Canadians’ strength lies with their goaltending and defense. Traditionally, Canadian teams have been characterized by a cornocopia of top notch forwards. But this team’s bread is buttered on the defensive side of the ice. Carter Hart will mind the net again for Team Canada as he did in 2017. A second round pick for the Philadelphia Flyers, Hart is a heralded goalie prospect that will be a stalwart for this team again throughout the tournament. In addition to stellar goaltending, the Canadians also boast a stable of talented offensive defensemen. Cale Makar, Jake Bean, Callum Foote, and Dante Fabbro give them a top 4 full of first round picks who can move the puck. 2nd round pick and 4th round picks, Kale Clague and Victor Mete round out one of the most talented defensive cores in the tournament. Not to mention, they’re still no slouches up front. High drafts picks like Dillon Dube, Robert Thomas, Sam Steel, Brett Howden, Michael Mcleod should have no problem creating offense and putting the puck in the net for the Canadians. However, it is interesting to note that Canada opted not to include a slew of 2017 first round top picks on the roster including: Cody Glass, Owen Tippett, Gabriel Vilardi, and Michael Rasmussen. But while this year’s Team Canada may not generate the same fanfare as teams in years past, it certainly has all the tools to return the glory as World Junior Champions. Yet it will be an uphill battle with 2 of the  best teams in their group, in USA and Finland.

Finland

fINLAND WJC.jpg

The only defense in this tournament that may trump Team Canada’s is Finland’s. Last year’s team was a tremendous disappointment. However, this year the fins bring five first round defensemen to Buffalo (in addition to two 2nd rounders and one 3rd rounder). Couple that was impressive array of forward prospects, and the Fins have the look of a team could reach the podium. Similar to the makeup of Canada’s team, the Fins strength starts from the back. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, a 2017 second round pick from the Buffalo Sabres, will get the starts for Finland in goal. Luukonen was rated the number one goaltending prospect in last year’s draft, and will look to justify that assessment in front of his future hometown crowd. But as I mentioned before, this team’s big names are on its blue line. Top 5 picks, Miro Heiskanen and Olli Juolevi will lead the line for the Finnish. The fifth overall pick in 2016, Juolevi is having an impressive season in the SM Liiga, with 14 points in 20 games. Oddly enough, the 2017 third overall pick, Heiskanen, has managed the same points total in as many games in the Finnish league. First rounders Juuso Vaimaki, Henri Jokiharju, and Urho Vaakanainen round out what I believe is the best defensive core in the tournament. So much is talked about their vaunted defense, that it is easy to forget how skilled Finland’s forward lines are as well. Eeli Tolvanen, a 2016 first round pick, will lead the attack. Tolvanen has been putting up remarkable numbers in the KHL this year, and figures to be a difference making scorer at the NHL level. Another 2017 first rounder, Kristian Vesalainen has had a similar impact in the SM Liiga. The presence of elite scorers from the highest levels of European hockey bodes well for Finland in this tournament. Furthermore, Otto Koivula and Juanne Kuokkanen will be auxiliary scoring options for this Finland team. Another point of intrigue will be the play of potential 2018 top ten pick Rasmus Kupari. Overall, the Fins have put together a very well rounded lineup this year. Whether or not they can make the podium over teams like USA, Canada, and Sweden remains to be seen.

Sweden

sweden wjc.jpg

As is typical, Sweden is one of the most dangerous teams in this tournament. Pundits have already crowned USA and Canada the favorite, but I would not be the least bit shocked if Sweden went home with Gold. They’re not necessarily as deep as the US or Canada, but will bring a few of the tournament’s most talented players to Buffalo. Here, all eyes will be on presumptive number one pick Rasmus Dahlin. The two way defenseman will look to cement his status as the 2018 draft’s top prospect, playing alongside a talented defensive core that features former first round picks, Timothy Liljegren and Eric Brannstrom.  Nevertheless, it is the top flight on offense that makes this team a contender. Last year’s fifth overall pick Elias Petterson may very well be the best player in the Tournament. Pettersson has been torching the Swedish Hockey League to the tune of 35 points in 26 games. He is a forward who possesses franchise player type potential, and will almost certainly have a major impact in this tournament. The seventh overall pick from last year’s draft, Lias Andersson, has an opportunity to do the same in Buffalo. Andersson has managed a solid campaign of his own in the SHL with 14 points in 22 games. Last but not least, 2016 8th overall pick Alexander Nylander will look to make his mark and prove the Sabres that he can be a franchise cornerstone. The top pick has yet been unable to show his worth in the AHL, but will have chance to thrive in front of his home crown in Buffalo. A top line that skilled should illustrate why the Swedish could be a problem for opposing defenses in 2018. On the other side of the pick, Second round pick Filip Gustavsson also provides the Swedes with stability in net. This team undoubtedly has the makeup to be successful, top to bottom. Suffice it to say, the Swedes are most definitely a threat to at least make the podium, if not win Gold.

Middle Tier:

Czech Republic

filip-chytil.jpg

The Czech Republic will actually bring a talented group to Buffalo. A forward group led by 2017 first round picks Filip Chytil and Martin Necas should be formidable. Additionally, potential top five pick in the upcoming NHL draft Filip Zadina should be exciting to watch. My concern with this team will be how the defense can hold up against upper echelon offenses like Sweden’s. Although The Czechs do have 37th overall pick Libor Hajek manning the blue line. While not a threat to the upper tier countries, the Czech Republic is equipped with more high level talent than year’s past.

Russia

svech.jpg

This year’s Russian team isn’t as star studded as it has been in years past. For that reason I expect them to struggle against high end opposition. They’re not entirely without talent though. Andrei Svechnikov figures to be the second overall pick in the 2018 NHL draft, and will be one to keep an eye on throughout the tournament. Furthermore, first round picks German Rubitsov and Klim Kostin give the Russians talent up front. But a few first rounders is nothing in comparison with the firepower teams like Canada, USA, Sweden and Finland bring to the table.

 

The Rest:

Slovakia

Slovakia shouldn’t trouble anyone of the teams mentioned above due to a lack of top flight prospects with only two NHL drafted players on the roster, Adam Ruzicka and Martin Studenic.

Denmark

No threat in this tournament, but the Danes actually bring some skill to the table through    forward Jonas Rondbjerg.

Switzerland

The only drafted player on this roster is 4th round pick Tobias Geisser. That should demonstrate the fact that this team won’t be able to hang with anyone in the top 6.

Belarus

Clearly the least talented team in the tournament, they will simply be looking to avoid relegation this year

Predictions

usa champ

Gold- USA

The American roster is insanely well rounded and they simply have too much firepower up front. Theres a reason they opened as betting favorites.

Silver- Canada

Carter Hart will be tough score on all tournament, and the Canadians’ stable of skilled puck moving defensemen should at guide them to the podium if not gold.

Bronze- Sweden

Every part of me wants to spew a piping hot take and say the Swedes will take gold. I simply can’t bring myself to pull the trigger. But make no mistake, USA, Canada, and Finland will have their hands full trying to deal with Sweden. Bronze is a conservative estimate.

4th Place- Finland

Finland has every opportunity to grab a medal with likely the best defense in the tournament, as well as formidable goaltending and scoring options. All of that being said,   the World Juniors are typically dominated by high volume scoring. Sweden, the United States, and Canada’s lineups are simply more dangerous on paper.

5th Place- Czech Republic

The Czech’s first line is elite. The rest of their lineup is relatively pedestrian in comparison with the squads listed above.

6th Place- Russia

The Russians have talent on offense, but not nearly enough to get them a medal. Unless Vladimir Putin suits up and pots 8 goals a game, this won’t be Russia’s year.

7th Place- Slovakia

There is a significant gap in quality between Russia at 6 and Slovakia at 7. Slovakia is simply the best of the worst in this tournament

8th Place- Denmark

Denmark is irrelevant in the hockey world for a reason. But they should be able to beat Belarus. Thats pretty chill.

9th Place- Switzerland

Swiss defense. More like Swiss cheese! GOT EEEEEMMM!!! But seriously these dudes are not very good at hockey.

10th Place- Belarus

They Stink…
