From what I've seen and with my my pre-tournament expectations, Tinordi has made the biggest impression.
Ferraro mentioned a couple of times he was the US's best player and I agree with him. My gut feeling tells me he's going to be the best of our 5 prospects.
Pribyl hasn't shown much but we can attribute that to his injury. So I have a wait & see attitude with this prospect.
I'm starting to see why Beaulieu dropped to us. It's not the end of the world but there are huge gaps in his game. Hopefully he will eventually close those gaps.
Bournival has settled into a two way player. Something tells me his offensive game won't translate to the NHL.
Gallagher has been the biggest disappointment. I know he's a spark plug & tireless worker with a never quit attitude but his size & average speed worries me when he has trouble finishing. Maybe he is just going through a dry spell. I certainly hope it's just a temporary thing and not an inability to score at a higher level.
