I like Espo's style.
Spott has to be happy with that game.
This WJC team is getting harder to pick.
I had pencilled Danault and Hudon in prior, but after last night, i see where the OHL has a few guys with wheels that play a more physical gritty game.
The Russian style of play is very surprising and disappointing to say the least.
