2016 World Cup of hockey may finally here. Tournament, including a whole bunch of the Blackhawks, will begin in Toronto on Saturday of the game pair, including many of the best players in the world. Please do not pretend you are not a little excitement.
8 teams of the tournament, which is broadcast on ESPN is, you are very, even if you do not have to think rooting interest that there is a need in the Hawks in the Stanley Cup final, should be a lot of fun to watch. Maybe the Black Hawk on the 1 - just select the team! - Sit back, you will enjoy the fact that there is no need to look at the professional baseball of another regular season. So you are ready to catch all the action, here is the complete schedule of the start time and TV information.
It has many reasons to be excited about the World Cup beyond the fact that it is the return of hockey. In Hawks fan in mind, here are some that will be worth a look in the entire tournament.
Get the treatment of ESPN Hawks
Well, around these parts, there is no lack of love for the Hawks. However, in reality, it is generally hockey is, all of its popularity in the United States is that there is no, and you probably, they are Jonathan Toews can go to most of the countries have no idea you. So, really you will not be disappointed if you are regularly played by these guys ESPN - go - in the sports of the location for many of the fans - the next two weeks.
But to end the hockey of the location as a niche sport in some of the game is the United States suddenly on ESPN, it is some of these great players, they will in a general discussion that does not field is understood it is not likely to help. I mean, ESPN has been destroyed Saturday of slate, which is the load of the eyeball magnet of college football in order to broadcast a funny hockey game. This is good.
On the other hand, you will probably need to listen to the analysis Stephen A. Smith hockey at some point. I on its part has been so much excitement.
Kempny to prove themselves, Pokka out
We are, you know most of the play Black Hawks in the World Cup is possible. Toews, Patrick Kane Jersey and Artemi Panarin is the superstar of the NHL. Many of the other people, is at least above average regular. It is how to get invitation for you to play in the World Cup, is common.
However, defense, there is a play Black Hawks of the pair in Toronto of people who have a lot to prove still. Michal Kemp knee and Virupokka of Finland of the Czech Republic, trying to carve out a role for the Hawks for both of the next season. World Cup represents a huge opportunity for each player to make an impression against some of the toughest competition possible.
Kempny are lined up before Rome Pollack, Andrei Sustr, Zbynek Michalek, of the players Yakubu Nakladal and Michal Jordan NHL, as the first defense for the Czechs. It is exactly, but there is no lamination group, with the flip side, if I Kempny was having here emerging trouble, I think it has been a little discouraged. Instead, Kempny is getting a lot to put on his plate in this tournament, and he says that it has given an extra confidence in him. For fishing someone in the bottom pairing gig in Chicago, all this is very heard encouraging.
And it has played a major role as nearly in Finland, but still he does not have the opportunity to show the progress that has been made on top of the ice Pokka is located. Finns have a number of young defense to share playing time behind the big name of Orri Maatta, Sami Vatanen and Rasmus Ristolainen. Pokka is, after winning the silver medal at the World Championships of 2016, managed to get a spot in the spring, he would be one of the most attractive players for Hawks fans to be monitored in this tournament.
Corey Crawford of the clock
Canada's opening game against the Czech Republic, the team has been going on in Carey Price and Corey Crawford in goal as his backup. This is the price is through this tournament, but just be assumed to be a Canadian starter, to see whether it is possible to Crawford to get into action in some form it will be interesting.
Why is it interesting? Because Crawford has never actually had been appropriate during the actual game for the Canadian senior national team before. Braden Holt Bee, to be scratched for the opening game of the backup Crawford - - country, usually is quite stacked, as a result, Crow, have never appeared in the Olympic Games and World Championships. He and because it was a late bloomer on the ice, either he, as a member of the junior team, was unable to get these opportunities.
So here, actually Crawford is one of the better goal tender in the game, at least in some respects, and hope that it is possible to obtain a number of actions. He fancy mask has all ready. He is, it is in order to confirm that it should become Canada GUY in this tournament with the price, completely even a reasonable case ... has won it.
Because nobody will be not hurt, in order to maximize the good mojo,
Tairasegan was the first notable victim of the World Cup at the hairline fracture in his foot. He will miss all of the beginning of the likely part of the Stars' training camp and the regular season while recovering. So, obviously we are, because they are trying to appease the gods of hockey so as not to give any more damage, If you do not see this thing.
