Not surprised by the score so far. It’s not a good team outside of Bedard, not to mention the goaltending sucks. The Americans are pure business out there.

One thing I’ve noticed about Wright he is terrible at face offs

You can see why Cooley went ahead of Wright in the draft. Good player

Pettersson seems to have all the qualities you're looking for in a good all around NHL defenseman.

I'm very encouraged by what I saw from him in the tournament. Had a good feeling about the kid right from the draft :)

Mr Aquilini obviously did his homework on this guy Chef. https://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/tea ... 07475.html

He now has a man in charge he can trust. Someone who doesn't require constant supervision; a man that will finally implement the West Coast management philosophy here :D

Chicago has some nice D depth with Korchinski and Del Mastro

I can see why the genius judge of young talent Jimothy Elmer Tiberius Benning felt that the pick that selected Geunther was expendable. He's not what I would hold fast too either after seeing him in action. Unfortunately the geniuses genius was limited to young talent

Fuck we're gonna miss GJETB (Genius Jimothy Elmer Tiberius Benning) when it comes to drafting

His absence is already hurting.

Pettersson really grew as the tournament went on. Started out on the right side on the third pairing, ended up on the left side along side Jansson.

Guenther is a Johnny on the spot type of player. Basically a shooter and not much else.

I'll be honest, I thought that was a good goal by US. Smart by Canada to challenge, it worked out for them.

Zach Dean has impressed me quite a bit as well as Ostapchuk

Jimmy gambled thinking OEL would revert back to his Norris calibre form of old. Bad gamble I guess

I’ll be blunt it was an awful trade by Benning. Tying up $12 million on OEL and Garland and losing the 9th overall pick in the process will go down as one of the worst trades in Canuck history. He deserved to be canned for it. That being said, I don’t think the trade was all “Bennings”.
