He was insanely good, the best player on the ice in my eyes.
As for the rest, the first two Finnish lines looked good, and I guess Armia was the most prominent of the forwards. Salomaki was a bit disappointing, as I really liked his play last year. Well, it was just the first game, so we'll see how it goes as the tournament starts.
On the Canadian end, you could really tell RNH's skill, as some of the stickhandling and sneaky passes were just amazing. I think he was clearly a notch above the rest as far as offense is concerned and I really wonder how this line will look with Huberdeau on it instead of Rattie. Not that Rattie played bad, but still. The other lines looked really underwhelming, with only MacKinnon's one kind of hanging in there. On the defensive end, I thought Ouellet looked pretty bad, and the rest looked alright, but not much more than that.
