The World Cup of Hockey is almost upon us. Favorites contain the usual suspects, Canada, USA, Sweden and Russia. The team that really intrigues me and catches my eye is Team North America. Loaded with young players and the future stars of the league they have dominated their exhibition games with blazing speed and skill. From Conner Mcdavid to Shane Gostisbhere to Matt Murray this team looks ready to surprise and is my darkhorse to win the whole thing. Can the Canadians, Americans, Swedes and Russians match their speed and skill? Physicality may be Team North Americas’ only weakness but in an international tournament like this it is seldom a deciding factor. I will be rootimg for Canada, but definetly keeping a close eye on the youngsters.Enjoy the tournament, Im sure we are in for an exciting ride.
