I thought Dubios was improving game by game, you can see something budding there over the last couple games. It is a 19 year old tourney, Barzal wasn't spectacular as an 18 year old but as a 19 year old he led the offense. The islanders have a beaut in Barzal the kid always makes something out of nothing
Would have nice to have Marner, Konecny, Chychrun. Patrick and Beauvellier.' But the Americans were missing some studs as well
Strome is awful 5 on 5 and due to his shot selection which is a major constant for him - get puck, blinders on, shoot!, because of it he's a turnover machine but 5 on 5 he's pretty useless
Jost was disappointing but like Dubios it's a 19 year old tourney. I imagine him and Dubios will be beasts in the 2018 tourney
Really impressed with Gauthier and Roy. A couple nice big bodied players the Hurricanes have there
Chabot - never knew he was this good. I liked a Clagues game, was disappointed in Bean but he's an 18 year old, should be a leader for us next year along with Clague. Probably will see 2017 draftees Foote and Hague on the team next year and maybe this 2018 stud - Merkely on D next year, our Dahlen
Fabbro wasn't great but I imagine he will be better as a vet next year.
A very good in your face, competitive energy player the Lightning have in Stephens. He's the best of the 5 prospects they had on Team Canada, I like Cireili's skill set and Joseph's wheels and stick handling but Stepehns is the catch. Raddyish was fading in the stiff competitor no of the game. The coach should have made him the 13th forward not McLeod. Raddyish is butter soft and McLeods speed and tenacity would have been the better option
Also impressed with Speers and Dube
Losing Myers was a kick in the teeth, he was neck and neck as good as Chabot if not better and how the fuck does Myers go undrafted, fuck the Fltyers future on D looks good, Provorov, Ghostisbehere, Sanheim, Morin
Really too bad Nolan Patrick wasn't there, the Hischier vs Patrick story would have been a nice side story, but man oh man is this Hischier good. Same can be said about Liljegren as he battled mono at the start of the season. The consensus top 3.
Patrick, Vilardi and Tippitt will be nice additions next year if they don't make the grade. Keep an eye out on this WHL wizard D-man named Makar.
Where was Chyzowski in all of this? Was he even at selection camp
The game deserved no loser, unfortunately there has to be one
