Definitely not a great Monahan performance, as he seemed a bit off with his timing offensively. Part of it was that his linemates were unfamiliar (and in my opinion not very impressive), but the pace of the game might not have helped. Monahan is used to controlling the flow of play offensively, and it's harder to do that in a game like that - not the style where you can make that adjustment instantly. On the plus side, he made several strong defensive plays and probably reinforced that his all-round game is top notch.
I doubt that this game matters much for Monahan's stock though, at least with scouts. Few players in this draft have been more heavily scouted over the past three years, so scouts know what he's about. His performances with Team Canada for the WJC (mixed results overall) during the summer and fall are far more relevant.
