This I know all too well, but these are mostly players who can't get into the NHL still, and this is still all NHL+ talent. They are keeping the games close, I see this, they will not get embarassed, however the talent is still lacking. They only have 6 NHL players, 2 of which are proven NHL regulars (besides Kolzig). They're getting better, they're not a push over, but they are the 8th team in this tournament....
