Holiday Hockey TV Schedule (WJC, Spengler, Leafs, Raptors, Winter Classic)


Well-known member
Yep, it's getting close to that cozy time of year when you can sit with friends and loved ones and watch all kinds of sports together, while eating and drinking way too much!

Always love this time of year, watching the draft classes play-off against each other in the WJC. As far as Leafs prospects, we are watching for Sandin (SWE),Robertson (USA) and Kokkonen (FIN). This year the Leafs play a mixed bag of teams over the holidays, including the Rangers twice, Devils, Isles and Carolina - and a quick Western swing to play Winnipeg and Minnesota. I'll toss the Raps in this time - as they've been must watch again this season.

Much love everyone, hope the season is great to you all!

Sandin should look like a polished pro compared to many of his peers.

I would be willing to add SWE to the schedule, if there is enough interest.

It's a high bar to set for him, but I'll be disappointed if he's anything less than a star in this tournament.

The kid's been a high-end player in the AHL last year and this year and didn't look out-of-place during a six-game stint in the NHL to start this season. So going back and playing against a bunch of junior-level kids should be easy-peasy for him in comparison.

All my friends who love the Leafs are raving over Sandin for the most part. Me? Eye test? I like mobility, not impressed with Sandin, love to see his skating and strength improve a lot.

Kid seems to have a high IQ, some sand, and nice passing. But his lack of top end mobility will hamper him at any level imho.

Lafreniere fucks up his knee or ankle badly and leaves. Potentially disastrous for him. And Canada is finished. They were shit with him.

Yea I will be shocked if Lafreniere plays again this tournament, that looked like an awful knee injury in that collision
