A few random comments...
Scheifele was much better against Slovakia than earlier games. He was playing with more speed and much more intensity. He still seems pretty weak on his skates sometimes, though. He is still weak on the face-offs, based on the few he took. To be honest, I have been quite impressed by Strome - he seems to have good speed, balance and poise. I would put him a bit above Scheifele at this point in terms of potential, based only on what I have seen in the WJHC. One thing to note is that Scheifele is playing out of position. I think he'll do much better at C, with good fast scoring wingers (like Kane).
Trouba has looked very solid to me. I think he'll be a real anchor on defense in the future. I have seen some question his positioning, but I haven't seen him get caught out of position in the WJHC.
Jones looks like he is going to be a dominant franchise-type player. He still tries to do too much, but he is going to be a franchise changer in the mode of Pronger and Weber, I think.
