FULL List of Teams Competing in the WCH2016 Include + Predicted MVPS for EACH Team:

 

• Team Canada | Sidney Crosby OR Drew Doughty

• Team North America | Connor McDavid OR Aaron Ekblad

• Team USA | Patrick Kane OR Ryan McDonagh

• Team Europe | Anze Kopitar OR Roman Josi

• Team Russia | Alexander Ovechkin OR Andrei Markov

• Team Sweden | Niklas Backstrom OR Erik Karlsson

• Team Finland | Alexander Barkov OR Rasmus Ristolainen

• Team Czech Republic | Jakub Voracek OR Roman Polak

 

THP World Cup of Hockey Prediction:

 

Czech Republic has a good mix of skill & grit but they aren't competition for teams like Canada, USA, Russia, Sweden...should I go on?

 

Team Finland has been solid for years, and they've been improving over the past few years, still don't see them beating Russia, let alone Canada.

 

Team Europe is the underdog in this tournament. They have the perfect mix of young guns & veterans. Kopitar will lead the team, and teach guys like Draisaitl how to compete with the big dogs. Watch out for them to make a splash in this tournament.

 

Team North America will be almost EVERYONES 2nd Favorite team [Behind their home country of course]. How can you NOT like McDavid, Eichel, Matthews, and Gaudreau ALL playing on the same team?

 

FINAL FOUR:

 

Team Sweden: After falling to Team Canada in last years Olympics. This team is looking for revenge. They still have all the same players, but will King Henrik be able to fend off Team Russia's superstars?

 

Team U.S.A: They aren't as flashy as their rivals Team Canada, but people should take note. Watch out for the US to make a statement this year. Patrick Kane and Joe Pavelski are coming off of wonderful years, and will look to carry the offense.

 

Team Russia: They've got the skill from the NHL & KHL. It's hard to say Russia won't make the Final 4, when you see Ovechkin/Datsyuk/Backstrom on one line.

 

Team Canada: Everyones favorite are back at it again. Even with Duncan Keith out they've got a nasty back end. Not to mention they have CAREY PRICE AND BRANDEN HOLTBY in net. They are our predicted champions.
