Reid Boucher is a shock to me. I felt that why break up the chemistry that he and Galy have had this year and parts of last year?? These tournaments are very short, and usually whoever bonds the fastest likely wins.. It does seem a bit strange that kid of his skill (arguably the top 2 shooter eligible for the US) who has scored bigtime goals for the US, and who did play for the USNDP got left off the eval roster.. that one makes no sense to me at all.

I am not calling out another CHL bias here, but I think the US could regret not having Boucher on this team. I have seen posts that he wouldnt make a top 6 role, but to be honest after looking at some of the mock rosters, how the heck wouldnt he? You bring Boucher along to play with Galy, simple as that.

He has kept up skating fine this year with Alex for Sarnia, but again IMO, this is a mistake for the US.
