Congrats to USA on the win they earned it. Congrats to Galchenyuk for having an impressive debut to the U-20's although i'm not sure he'll be there in 2014 since hopefully the NHL is back by then.

I can admit he didn't look as awesome as I had hoped he would and it's not a big deal since i've already seen a bunch of times what this kid can do but I still blame the coaching for Team USA as he is an elite talent and should have been used more, had a bigger role with the team. But in the end they won and their top line got hot when it mattered most, so it's easy to see why some would blame the coach while others wouldn't.

No way, that's a long flight back home, let him rest a little and enjoy the experience.

I'm in the 1st group in that I think Galchenyuk is a future superstar but despite not looking his best still had a very good debut to the U-20's. His coach should have used him more since he's an elite offensive talent that can do it all but it worked out for USA in the end.
