2012 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships Thread

I thought it would be fun to discuss games, players, etc. over the course of the tournament. Who knows, we may even require a gameday thread for the Canada-USA game(s).

One little tidbit I'm very excited about; Jamie Oleksiak has just been moved up to the third pairing due to strong performances in the pre-tournament games (he originally made Team Canada as the 7th defenseman). He has received the least amount of coverage among all defensemen, so hopefully this is just a sign of things to come.

What are your thoughts on the teams and players leading up to puck drop? Let's get this tournament started!
