Gaudreau was very underwhelming. Gets muscled off the puck too often, but at the same time, I will say Housley is some how managing to make Spott look like a good coach. Horrific coaching decisions throughout the game.
I thought he was the most effective American forward in terms of creating opportunities (Which is not saying much I suppose).

He had a breakaway in the first, set up JT Miller point blank on a daft little pass in the second, and on more than a few occasions made beautiful passes from behind the net to both Jones and Trouba.

It may sound funny, but I think the larger ice surface is actually a deterrent to his playstyle simply due to the fact that his acceleration is not that great for a smaller player.

The problem with this years US squad is that they lack chemistry. It really is that simple. Outside of the fourth line, I honestly can't see much cohesion.

Housley has no business coaching at this level.
