I have a few thoughts on some of Canada's players.
Drouin has really impressed, his lower body strength reminds me a bit of Crosby when he played in the WJ (Im not saying he's the next Crosby) I really like how he has such a low centre of gravity and uses his strong legs to avoid defenders.
Mackinnon reminds me a bit of Wheeler. Big strong kid that can really skate, he's going to be a real power forward in the future.
I really like Ouellet so far in the tourney and Harrington's play reminds me of Marc Staal when he played in the WJ.
Subban is playing great just as I said he would
Actually he's making me eat my words the last two games which Im fine with. I really like how far he comes out on breakaways and relies on his backwards skating to make guys deke instead of being shooters.
I was also wrong on draft day as I had hoped we selected Reinhart ahead of Trouba but am now glad we got Trouba, although I think long term Reinhart will eventually develop into a nice big shut down dman.
Looking forward to the semis.
