The puck drops for the 2015 World Junior Hockey Championship on Boxing Day and while its still 112 days away, Canadas challenge remains the same - figuring out which players may or not be available to Team Canada because of potential spots available on NHL rosters. Wilt Chamberlain Authentic Jersey . The challenge was certainly there during the gold medal years, but the spoils of victory demonstrated the enormous depth of talent Team Canada could draw upon. Now going five years without a gold medal - not to mention two consecutive years without any medal at all, five countries winning gold in the past six years and this years tournament on home ice - Hockey Canadas challenge isnt any easier. And the expectations remain as high as ever. Starting today and at the start of each month going into the 2015 tournament, TSN will examine candidates for Team Canada leading up to the selection camp in December. A roster of 13 forwards, seven defencemen and two goaltenders will be tabled, along with other potential players who could challenge. And this list will certainly change as the season unfolds. The September edition allows us to look at all candidates prior to NHL training camp. For the initial roster, Jonathan Drouin is not listed because the belief that hell be in the NHL on Oct. 8 is very strong. Who are the other players Canada may be missing? As always, the players are ones that can have a significant impact on the team. Its one thing to understand who may be unavailable, but the challenge is actually identifying the players who can fill the void. First-overall NHL draft pick Aaron Ekblad will almost certainly be unavailable. Think back to the 2014 Mens Olympic Team when head coach Mike Babcock wanted balance between the left and right shots on the blue line. With the absence of Ekblad, that leaves one right shot defenceman - Madison Bowey - on the roster. Chris Bigras was on the World Junior Team last winter, but with the quality of players on the left side he may have to demonstrate a strong ability to play the right side. Jeremy Roy is a draft eligible player for next June - and is a very good player at that. His maturity is excellent and he may be able to challenge for a spot. Given that hes a right-handed shot, it could give this years team the balance theyre looking for. At forward, the potential for missing players is always at the top end of the lineup in terms of skill and impact. Possible returnees Sam Reinhart and Curtis Lazar lead the group and Max Domi was close to starting with the Phoenix Coyotes last season. Replacing Sam and Curtis is a significant challenge, because their impact has a wide-ranging effect. They can play all situations in the game, are versatile and can move throughout the lineup. Theyre also game changers and either one of them could be team captain. Meanwhile, Jake Virtanen is coming off shoulder surgery and his health may be a key factor in stepping into the void. He fits the bill of being a top-end talent with the skill to impact a game. The tricky part of the evaluation is identifying those players who can play outside their natural positions and contribute. Centre Robbi Fabbri had a fantastic playoff for the Guelph Storm and would be a leading candidate to step into a vacancy because hes shown a capability to play to his strengths - down the middle or on the wing. On the left side, Anthony Duclair is a tremendously talented player and when looking to replace a guy like Max Domi, it appears to be seamless with respect to his skill. Keep in mind that Sam Bennett and Connor McDavid have played alongside one another with great success, so this may be a natural fit. Brendan Lemieux brings a different element, but his ability to rise to the occasion in important games could see him fit in a different way - perhaps coming in from the bottom part of the roster as others push up. Canadas depth is strong, but replacing key performers is never easy. The expectations arent lower, but the task for the Team Canadas personnel is to form a team that meets those expectations - regardless of whos available or not.

Latrell Sprewell Jersey . -- Drew Doughty had just played more than 39 minutes in a double-overtime playoff game, and he still couldnt sleep on the Kings flight back to Los Angeles. Klay Thompson Swingman Jersey . His absence against the Celtics comes a day after he scored 43 points in the Heats 100-96 win at Cleveland.DETROIT -- At this time last year, Tigers manager Jim Leyland was telling reporters that the middle of his lineup was set "in stone" -- with new designated hitter Victor Martinez in the No. 5 spot. Now Leylands batting order is a lot less certain. After an excellent first season in Detroit, Martinez tore the ACL in his left knee last week during off-season conditioning, and the Tigers are considering their options with spring training set to start in about a month. "I wrote down several lineups already since this happened," Leyland said. "But theres also a blank spot in the lineup. Whatever spot it may be, theres also a blank spot, because somebodys got to DH." Leyland was relatively at ease Thursday during the Tigers winter caravan. Detroit announced Martinezs injury Tuesday, so the team has had a chance to reflect on the news. He could miss the entire season. Detroit won the AL Central by 15 games last year and reached the AL championship series behind Justin Verlander, Miguel Cabrera and Martinez. The team has been quiet this off-season, but now the Tigers must scramble a bit. Martinez hit .330 with 103 RBIs in 2011, and that production wont be easy to replace. "I think well have somebody, either internally or externally, by opening day," Leyland said. "The only blessing to this whole thing is weve got 10 weeks to rectify the problem." Martinez signed a US$50 million, four-year contract with Detroit before last season, and Leyland couldnt wait to put him right behind Cabrera in the lineup. The two formed a powerful pair, but Cabrera -- the slugging first baseman -- downplayed the importance of having another big bat immediately after him in the order. "Weve got a great organization. Weve got a great manager. I think theyll figure out what theyre going to do," Cabrera said. "I dont worry about whos going to hit behind me, whos going to hit in front of me." Martinez was signed to be the teams DH and also catch occasionally, but injury problems late last season made it hard for him to play the field. Detroit acquired Gerald Laird in the off-season to back up starting catcher Alex Avila, but now the switch-hitting Martinezs bat is out of the picture for the foreseeable future. Tim Hardaway Jersey. "I was about as shocked as everybody else was. Its an injury, it happens in this game a lot," Avila said. "A lot of teams every year go through injuries that they have to kind of get through as a team." Leyland sounded open to a number of possible solutions, although he didnt want to discuss too many specifics. Because theyre replacing a DH, the Tigers can be flexible, either acquiring someone for that spot or bringing someone in to play the field and moving somebody else to DH. "It depends on who the guy is," Leyland said. "Is the guy really a full-time DH? Is he a part-time player, part-time DH? Is he a guy you can play in the field? Does it mean you can make some adjustments and give guys a little more rest?" The Tigers re-signed outfielder Delmon Young on Tuesday after trading for him in August, and outfielder Brennan Boesch is back after hitting .283 with 16 home runs in 115 games last year. The 26-year-old Boesch hurt his right thumb and had to miss the end of the season -- and Leyland doesnt seem eager to change his role much, in the field or in the batting order. "I dont really want Boesch to be a DH," Leyland said. "Boesch is coming back off the thumb and everything and I dont want him to start worrying right now about, Oh my God, Im behind Cabrera again, Ive got to protect Cabrera." Leyland expects pitching to be a strength. Verlander won the Cy Young Award and MVP last year, and Detroit will now have a full season of Doug Fister. The Tigers acquired Fister in the middle of last season, and he went 8-1 with a 1.79 earned-run average after joining Detroit. "Theres no question about it. Weve got a good team," Leyland said. "Were going to be starting the season this year with Delmon Young and Fister. Theyre going to be here from the get-go this time. After we got them last year, we really went on a roll. Obviously, Victor was a big part of that as well, but were pretty good."
