    Lots to look forward to in this year's edition.
    played in Buffalo - probably going to be dominated by Canadian fans.
    US/Canada playing an outdoor game should be interesting. Seems kind of too high of stakes for an outdoor spectacle but it'll be cool regardless.

    and why is called the 2018 WJC even though most of the games are played in 2017?

    real excited to get a look at Quinn Hughes, assuming he makes the team.
    too much Harvard on here, pretty sure Dan will agree with that.

    Canadianers will dominate fan attendance. Hell, after next-door Sweden, they dominated the games in Helsinki.

    The Championship game is in January. Hence, the 2018 games.

    USA, USA, U S A!

    That young Michigan D would look good in Sabres blue in another couple of years.

    The players are going to really enjoy the hockey indulgence that Buffalo will slather on them. I especially look forward to seeing how the fans respond to Sabres prospects from Euro countries. (The G from Finland is one to watch, and as a bonus, he has one of the coolest names in all sports: Ukka-Pekka Luukkonen.)
