I'd agree with that. Of course, Team Canada as a whole is considerably stronger than the U.S., so we're not exactly comparing apples to apples.

Galchenyuk has not been brilliant, and yet he's somehow the best forward (by leagues) on a weak team and second only to Nugent-Hopkins in scoring as an 18 year old. As a Habs fan, I'm more than content to console myself with that exceptionally weak and laughable play, at least according to some posters here.
