From the word go the officiating was going to be a problem for this squad. But not unpredictable.
Agreed. Canada's usually built to break other teams though... At least, as far as I can remember. We build it more like an NHL squad, which doesn't always pay off...
I still feel they're playing MacKinnon ineffectively. There was that comment earlier, Mackinnon, Jones, and Barkov, and Jones shining the most.
I disagree, I think Droin should be included in non-draft players and he's been everywhere, and I think Mackinnon's looked very good too. He's getting pretty limited minutes.
