Moulding

Moulding not looking good. If he can't go and you are Bottcher who do you replace him with? I'd ask Nichols first and if he declines then Kennedy. Both experienced big game players who I think could fit in on any team.

well, it depends on whether or not CC allows him to pick. we know they have a past of meddling with teams

but i do think that if you're bottcher you definitely choose someone you're familiar with not base it off resume.

so if he has to bring someone in maybe kennedy seems like it makes the most sense. morris might be another choice. or maybe he moves thiessen up to third and brings in their regular atlernate to play in thiessen's positions.

If CC does meddle i have a feeling it will be between the 2 guys you mentioned. nichols and kennedy

Stop your fretting...it was just announced on TSN that Moulding is feeling better and will play in the worlds. All the same might be wise to bring an experienced vice as the spare.

Kennedy is the easy choice. Fellow Edmontonian, in the bubble already. Makes sense.

I think it was premature & irresponsible for Cathy & Mudryk to suddenly declare Moulding was A-OK and ready to rumble. He's still undergoing physio-therapy. No guarantee there's an underlying problem causing "back spasms".

I think whether he's the starter at 3rd (they'll do everything they can to insure this) there has to be a Plan B.

They have to load a star curler as their 5th player, no question. My votes - in order:

1. Mark Kennedy
2. John Epping
3. Mark Nichols
4. Brett Gallant
5. Matt Dunstone
6. Johnny Mo

I think Kennedy and Dunstone would fit into that dynamic better than the others.

From a point of view of just enjoying watching tension and awkwardness (and admittedly not particularly caring if Bottcher wins worlds), I vote Morris from your list. He'd eat Bottcher alive.

Yes he was still walking gingerly and then doing some very careful stretch exercises and Mudryk was proclaiming him 100%. He was moving better than 2 days ago which is promising but he isn't near 100%.

That he would. I'm sure Bottcher would rather bring his Bobby-Soxxer aboard - IF HE COULD.

But Johnny Mo would create lots of doubt & tensions on this team, particularly with Brendan!

Shannon is really in tough today, not because she can't stand up to Danielle Schiemann. She can!
Mostly cuz Birchard's MD partner, Catlin Schneider can't stand up to John Morris. NB. Few can.
Morris tossing 3 out of 5 rocks per end - but Birchard will give it her all - - - she'll be facing some Frankenstein shots courtesy of Johnny Mo . . . ! ! !

Just kick Patrick Janssen in the gut Team Bottcher. Not a classy move. Does anyone see CC involvement again in this decision. Way to Go Katherine Henderson.

Yes I see CC involvement - however Bottcher is keeping Pat as part of the team. Just not as a 5th. I think Brendan was given a list & told to choose one.
