Canada's golden defense in Sochi was possibly the best ever. For the Worlds Team Canada could count on some players who were on the Olympic orientation roster: Karl Alzner, Mike Green, Travis Hamonic, Marc Methot and Dion Phaneuf. Mark Giordano and Kevin Bieksa would provide great leadership. Morgan Rielly and Justin Schultz are two young and promising defensemen who could be among the league's best in a couple of years.
