WJCs; Aaron

The 2007 World Junior Championships will take place in less than a week, and the WJC website has the schedule. The United States draws Canada, Sweden, Slovakia, and Germany - a tough group indeed. The tournament is on Sweden's home ice and Canada is usually stacked in youth. Unfortunately for the rest of Group A; the United States boasts plenty of talent: Kyle Okposo, Jack Skille, Peter Mueller, Ryan Stoa, Pat Kane, James Van Riemsdyk, Brian Lee, and the DUAL MONSTER PERFORMING JOHNSONS (soon to be TM by Pierre McGuire): Erik and Jack.'s World Juniors page is likely your best source of coverage of the tournament. They have team rosters for everyone except Russia (they haven't announced theirs yet. Uh...bold move, Russia to wait until the last minute). They also have news and TSN Broadband will have highlights it seems. Four Devils prospects will be at the WJCs. Goaltender Jeff Frazee is returning to mind the nets for the USA and defenseman Sean Zimmerman got selected as the 7th defenseman. Top 2005 pick Nicklas Bergfors will be featured heavily in Sweden's forward lineup and on offense. Alexander Sundstrom also got selected for team Sweden. I'm hoping Alexander Vasyunov will be on Russia's WJC team, but their roster has yet to be announced. Good luck to the Devils and the USA team in the 2007 WJCs.

By the way, if you may have noticed, about 90% of my comments are by a guy named Aaron. Well, Aaron has started a new blog of his own about the Devils: Devils Fan in Boston. His first post focuses on the Devils' recent 4-3 loss to Atlanta and goes into good depth in recapping the game. Good job, Aaron. Readers who aren't Aaron, I suggest you go read it.
