How can you expect kids that have been "riding the pine" at the OHL level for the last four months step in and compete at this level. Would have been better off filling the bottom spots with role players that might not have necessarily been 1st rounders' or even Tier 1/2 player that are actually playing a regular shift in their league.
Or Maybe they should get a better coaching staff. The last half of the game they went with 6 forwards and 3 maybe 4 defence and they ran out of gas. Thought they would have learned after the loss to the U.S. game.
