Solid win. Again, don't just look at my location and flag and assume I'm reacting as Canadians would I'm a weird one.

Miller is playing perfect Torts hockey which is good to see. Scoring on the WJC can be misleading IMO. Not only is it shortened tournament games but there are certain gravitation toward certain elements of the game that can Change scoring dynamics for players. Having that said, a little more maneuvering in the offensive zone to give himself a better chance can't hurt his work ethic.

Alex G just didn't find the right chemistry in this tournament. Put him on the right line and a potent power play, he'll be snipping water bottles all day. Trouba over Jones. Gibson channeled some Lundqvist consistency and work ethic.

Johnny Gaudreau is going to be really interesting in a few years depending on how well he works his game and improves on understanding how to use his strengths to be effective consistently.

USA.
