Definitely wouldn't call it a bad game. He made things happen every shift and he probably had the puck more then every other forward. Just poor decision making.

Speaking of poor decision making, good lord Seth Jones. He's huge and has talent, but he was making questionable plays all game. I can see him molding into a superstar, but I don't know if he is ready to take the reigns at this stage.

Every forward was great. I found Riley Barber's game to be a little "meh" but if he keeps doing all the little things right next to a forward as good as Galchenyuk (the most talented forward we have had in years), then he will do good.

Same with the defense and goaltending, everyone was great. Jake McCabe and Connor Murphy were as mistake free as it gets.

Every player was good, and while Miller made a lot more good plays then others, he had quite a few bad plays as well.

Habs got a great player here. for some reason i think he will be their best skilled player after one season when he reaches the NHL.. i just hope the Habs dont ruin him. they havent had much luck with top draft picks...outside McDonagh who they traded, they drafted first round picks in Carey Price in 2005 and and Max Pacioretty in 2007 were the only first round picks since 2005 that has made the NHL regular... PK Subban was a 2ed round in 2007... 1st round pick from 2009 Louis Leblanc only played 42 games in his first NHL season last year..

side note. I dealt Richards and 1st in 2018 to Habs for Galchenyuk, 1st in 2013 and 3rd in 2013 in NHL 13..
