Initial 20-man roster has been announced - Reimer, Kadri, Rielly are the Leafs on it.  No Bozak, for now anyways.

Full roster (so far): http://stats.hockeycanada.ca/roster/show/1160884?subseason=153007

Scrivens joins Reimer in net. I'm sure that'll be a neat moment for the two of them.

Reimer's going to thank him for taking the #1 job in Edmonton before he could get traded there.

Hey, they still need a 1B!

I'm a little more loose after the season, but that went on a tad too long for me.

Kessel/Bernier too good to get into those sweepstakes, even with Dandy Randy.

I'm not entirely serious of course, but a bad break here or there injury/performance wise and we could be a little deeper in the lottery conversation.

Man, would there ever be a lot of upset people around here if Carlyle wasn't fired...

Meh.

McDavid/Eichel 2015.

I question the validity of the story. It lists Mark Scheifele as one of the players. He's been out of the Jets lineup for a month with a season ending knee injury. On the WC team now? I highly doubt it.....

He's healthy now and has been confirmed:

As Hope_Smoke on twitter points out, TSN.ca's roster lists Bozak too: http://www.tsn.ca/canadian_hockey/feature/?id=63060

That's hilarious. Has there ever been an international mystery the magnitude of "Is Bozak on Team Canada's world championship roster?"

It's right up there with the true identity of the Zodiac killer.

Oh my god, it was Bozak!

That link lists Steve Staios as the teams Director of Player Development. Not really sure what a WC team needs somebody like that for, but hey there's somebody from the Leafs on their staff.

In Winnipeg the players get all the BS, like Kane.

And Byfuglien. Who have nothing in common other than being lazy and spoiled.

Does that apply to Bernier as well, since the only reason we got him is because he asked for a trade out of LA?

Didn't Gilmour ask for trades out of both Calgary and Toronto?

could they mean the women's worlds?

The countries from the Olympics aren't participating in the tournament this year. Again, Dineen is coaching Canada's U18 team right now, but Nonis isn't involved with that either (Hockey Canada runs that in house).

Its strange, because it does say this…

Kevin Dineen, fired as head coach of the Florida Panthers, who led Canada to Olympic gold in women’s hockey. He’ll work with Nonis on Team Canada’s entry at the world championship.

Sorry, I skipped over the part about the coaches. Thing is Dineen also isn't involved with the WC team. Tippett, DeBoer, and Maurice were the coaches announced: http://www.hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/news/Tippett-to-coach-Canada-at-2014-worlds.

He's currently coaching Canada's U18 team, so I'm going to guess the article is just wrong.

You link isn't working, but this is the article you're referring to? http://www.thestar.com/sports/leafs/2014/04/13/maple_leafs_face_major_offseason_issues.html

Doesn't say anything about Nonis being on the staff.

I guess with Nonis involved, a few Leafs that normally
wouldnt get selected are getting a shot to represent Canada for the first time in their careers.



I don't believe Nonis is involved this time around.

edit: He's not on the management group: http://www.hockeycanada.ca/en-ca/news/Rob-Blake-named-general-manager-of-Canadas-National-Mens-Team-for-2014-IIHF-Ice-Hockey-World-Championship

FYI hearing that Nazem Kadri was invited today and accepted world championship invite for Canada...


Kadri over Bozak? Hmmmm

This is shaping up to be a pretty mediocre team though. I guess that's normal for Olympic years.
