Schenn continues to underwhelm me. Sure he's got the tools to be a solid all around player but something i haven't seen at all is anywhere close to high-end playmaking/scoring touch. With a 5th overall pick, i think having some expectations of something a little special offensively is completely reasonable. Schenn in the memorial cup was OK, he was OK in last years WJC, and despite the stat sheet, he was pretty much underwhelming today for the forward with the most experience. The more i watch Schenn, the less excited I get about his top end potential.

Kitsyn however was great today with tarasenko. However the most eye catching forward for me on Team Russia was Burdastrov, anybody know his draft status? I have a feeling he was passed on in previous drafts. Reading up on Kitsyn it seems like he was the best player in the Subway Series. Overall i'm very encouraged by Kitsyn's play today against a very tough opponent.

Forbort... was watching the kings game so i missed a lot of that US game.
