Early tomorrow morning, the final cuts for Team Canada's world junior team will get a phonecall. The merciful coaching staff make the cuts early so the kids can hit the airport and (hopefully) avoid the media.
Two Edmonton Oiler prospects played tonight (against a team of CIS All-Stars) and will be watching late night television, counting minutes along with the clock radio and waiting for the phone to ring. Or not.
