The return of the World Cup of Hockey/Predicitons
I for one have genuinely missed the classic best on best tournament. My earliest memories as a child is the '87 Canada Cup and the famous series winner scored by the Mario Lemieux on a setup by Wayne Gretzky.
Now it's back with an interesting twist. Two original teams not ties to any nation - the under 23 North American team and Team Europe. Both are interesting in their own right.
I think Team Europe has looked slow and out of place, while NA looks super-fast and ready to show the world how talented they are to complete against the veterans.
Here are my predictions for the WCOH:
1. CAN vs 2. RUS
1. SWE vs 2. USA
CAN vs USA - CAN in 3
