Jesus the Wild have some nice young talent playing in the Semis.

Kunin , Eriksson Ek, Greenway and the Russian kid are all awesome prospects.

The Americans will win the tourney. That's a hungry, determined, tight group they have. The swedes might be able to give them a good battle but the Canadians don't match up well against the yanks

Kaprizov ix the Russkie Wild project, very nice player but yeah those are 4 really nice players they have. Ek was a player I was hoping to daft but he went much earlier than his rankings, still happy we got Boeser. But really like Kunin and Greenway

Dylan the most overrated player in the tourney. An amazing individualist who can't do fuck all 5 on 5. As long as he is on the team we won't win gold. Still don't get his him and his bro are top 5 draft picks

Fucking Ingram. Jesus, but Ducharme needs to learn to rotate the goalies. Hopefully Hart can shut the door. As an asside Benson should be here and for fuck sakes how about a national junior team coach instead of rotating coaches every year.

Dylan is a much better player than Ryan.
He's slow like Sedin or Thornton but his game will translate to the pros, just not until he's 22-24. Kid has hands and can pass the puck with the best of them.

I find it hard to believe Ingram is the one of the best under-20 goalies this nation can muster. That was some of the worst goaltending you'll see. He hasn't looked good all tournament.

Nice that Cirelli and Stephens are showing up, time for Dubois and Strome to take over a game (without the need for a PP).

It pains me to say but I like the Flames prospect - Dillon Dube, fast, skilled, gritty and smart

Stromes skating and gangly weak strength is not cut out for the NHL, he's a bigger bust than his brother. Both should have been drafted way late in the first round

Lucky save by Hart. :(

Sweden needs to put more pressure on the Canadian D.

Good game though.
Both teams creating a lot.

You'd think of the 1,000's of shots he takes he'd eventually score, but again, another non 5 on 5 goal from Strome

If they at least had had the decency to make an equally soft make up call to let us back in. :(

Oh well.

Canada played a great game and got some lucky bounces.
Congrats on the victory.
