Its funny, but none of the top picks in the last draft seems to be doing that great.

1) Yakupov- Has been mediocre to horrible
2) Murray- N/A Injured
3) Galchenyuk- Dissapointing, but is still second in scoring in tournament
4) Reinhart- Haven't really noticed him all that much, a few mistakes
5) Rielly- A little bit like Galchenyuk, some good and bad moments
6) Lindholm- N/A Injured
7) Dumba- Did not make team
8) Pouliot- Did not make team
9) Trouba- Great tournament so far, probably the Americans best player
10) Koekkoek- Did not make team
11) Forsberg- Medicore tournament, good and bad moments
12) Grigorenko- Been good some moments and invisible others
13) Faksa- Haven't heard much about him, 2 assists in 4 games
14) Girgensons- Not at tournament
15) Ceci- Did not make team

To be honest with you, besides Trouba, no Top 15 pick has had a great tournament. Yes I was expecting Gally to dominate, but he's not and for some reason hasn't found himself yet in this tournament. This is not a make or break tournament for players. Some have dominated in this tournament and have struggled during their career just like some that have struggled during this tournament and had great careers afterwards.
