Caps, Blues enjoy strong showings
When scouts go to the IIHF World Junior Championship and follow up on their teams' top drafted prospects, the tournament could be in Siberia but it would still feel like a vacation. Those scouts know they have job security and are the envy of the fraternity. And, the fact is, if an organization has even one player who projects as a top-six forward or top-four D, the pipeline is in pretty good shape. (And that's especially true if tournament-eligible talent is already playing on the NHL roster.)
To see how every NHL team came away from the World Junior Championship, you need to be an Insider.
