In the Gold medal game, Grimaldi was the hero. That's what you need to win.
what other people also seem to fail to realize is that Galchenyuk usually drew the opponents top checkers/defenders...so he almost singlehandedly helped to shield our other lines as he was most teams main focus. you can say that he didnt do enough offensively for this tournament which some are saying, but he still had 8 points I believe and really did help our Miller-Gaudreau-Vesey line be able to get the open ice needed as Galy usually was everyones top target.
he did enough overall with limited linemates and top defenders on him...not complaining one ounce with him at all. thanks Alex for being American!!!
