That was a really entertaining game to watch. Canada has a lot of good young players coming up and so does Russia

Hughes might initially struggle defensively in the pros, but no more than Stecher or Pouliot does now.

But what he can do once he has the puck? Oh my!

TG will only need to drill into him that he doesn't have to force plays and do it all by himself. I just see him having the same will to improve in the aspects where he is weak. He'll prove the naysayers wrong just like Bo and Petey did.

I wouldn't worry too much.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Tyler Madden
Canucks prospect Tyler Madden named Player of the Game for 🇺🇸 in 4-1 win over Finland.

Madden had two goals, including the winner.
& that's without Jack Hughes.

dudes' stock rising up in this tournament, I can see him playing well with Gaudette or Horvat or hell even Petey in the not too distant future.

Quarter finals tonight:
Sweden vs Switzerland
Canada vs Finland

I expect semifinals to be Sweden vs Canada and USA vs Russia.

Sweden not playing well. 2-0 for the Swiss after two periods.
They need to step it up in the third and show the difference between a big six nation and those on the outside. :evil:
