    Perhaps the Canadian entry can be considered 'second rate', but I suspect the teams from Sweden, Russia, Finland, and the Cech Republic (at the very least) might take offense at such a generalization which, by inference, impugns all of the participating teams. Ovechkin, Kovalchuk, the Sedins among other 'second rate' players all participated in this tourny...
    Engelwood jack, that's the way.

      have the exact same feeling as Herb Brooks did. Its a total waste of money

      Pat Kane left after first year and says it was that

      its a program that ran its course and has not been gassed because the few who run it milk it for big checks.

      Then when it comes time for the intl events, they leave kids home and bring in outsiders

      100% waste of money. all would have ended up the same player without it
      And once again you show how clueless you really are lol....Bitter parents are so hilarious on here....

        Zucker and Campbell could still win two more World Junior Championships in the next two years.

        Jason Zucker and Jack Campbell did something that no other American players accomplished in history. The two won in their third gold-medal in an IIHF World Championship event in the last calendar year. No previous American player had more than two gold medals at an IIHF Menís World Championship event in his international career. Zucker and Campbell each were part of the U.S. Menís National Under-18 Team that captured gold at the 2009 IIHF World Menís Under-18 Championship. They also played on the U.S. National Junior Team that earned the gold medal at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship.

            Except pretty much all IIHF Championships are this way. Almost all of them take place during major potions of something. The U20s and the Olympics catch a break because the best players get released from their teams for them.
