The only Canadian defensman who I'd say played well today was Reinhart.
Hamilton forces plays that arent there (don't like Rielly and him together...doesn't work for me).
Ouelette I'll give a pass for rust, but he looked pretty weak out there, couldn't make a breakout pass to save his life.
Ryan Murphy, I would hate to play with. You can never tell what's going on in his head. It's exciting and hard to defend, but in a team system/dynamic it would be hard to adjust.
The pairs I'd like to see are:
Reinhart-Rielly (guys who can skate like Morgan should have little issue playing the off side on big ice)
The last 3 just mix and match until something works.
I found JC Lipon the most diverse forward today. He seemed to slot into every line seamlessly. I liked his game a lot.
Not overly impressed with Strome and I wouldn't be surprised if Mackinnon steals that #2c spot by the medal round. Also think Strome would make a better winger than mackinnon so far.
