2014 World Juniors Bo Horvat Tracker

Post #1 by Hooker » Thu Dec 26, 2013 11:50 am

I didn't watch the game vs Germany because it was in the middle of the night and this shit will certainly keep TSN afloat for fourteen years no question.

Horvat got a goal and was +2.

Starting to look more and more like BoHo will become our next Linden.

I didn't really see much of holik in his prime but from what I know about him, he was a big body designed for the dead puck era with the physicality and obstruction. Horvat's not very big, and he definitely has average nhl speed while Holik was slow as molasses. Not sure about Holik, but Horvat's defensive acumen comes from knowing where to be at all the right times.

I don't think they're alike, and truth be told it would be hard for a player in the mold of Holik to succeed in today's game which is based on speed.

Gaunce seems more like Holik than Horvat. Holik was elite for quite a few years. Dominant physical, shut-down, guy who could chip-in offensively.

World Juniors is my favourite hockey of the year, but fuck me, there is NO way I am waking up for like any of these games. Can't wait for the tournament to come back to Canada next year.

I realize the irony of posting this at 4:30 AM, of course.

9 - 2 Slovakia over Germany and now Finland plays Norway. I picked a good day to get up early.

Borvat was basically the best player and also this team Canada junior team is the worst in recent memory because nobody can play D. Matt Dumba screams bottom pairing defenseman.

Borat got zero points against Slovakia. He's a bust.

EDIT: Also, the rest of Team Canada is a bust.

EDIT 2: Also, TSN is a bust.

Borat gets an assist and is +1. Took the game's first penalty but drew one on the team's second to even it up. Hooker turned the game off early in the second period because the world juniors are fucking boring.

The world juniors are dumb. Canada is the only country that cares and only because TSN pushes it so hard.

Sorry I neglected to keep up with this, but I couldn't even be assed to check TSN - the only website in the world that even gives a shit about the world juniors - to see how the Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Canada was going.

Turns out Canada beat Switzerland and he didn't even register a point.

Before the juniors got under way, I was looking through the rosters on TSN, and one of the columns was which team each player had been drafted by. Everyone on Canada and USA were either drafted or yet to enter eligibility. Every other team was just a handful of players (like, just over what a given CHL team might have).

Food for thought (about what a bunch of useless cunts these teenagers are).

Trade Borat.

The problem is that the selection committee did the exact same shit everyone is making fun of Hockey USA for, which is overthink obvious decisions and leave your most talented players behind in order to have a "real" team with a "real" "bottom six". Why the fuck wasn't Max Domi on this team? Just retarded.
