Were Deslauriers and Ward placed on the OUA team so they could get evaluated better by facing more shots? IMO those are the 2 who are fighting for the 3rd position going with Fleury and Harding as their 2. I watched the 3rd period only but Deslauriers played very very good.

I think we are going to be in for a surpruse with Crosby. I think everybody is expecting him to step in and light the lamp 20 times, but he's 16 dudes. Sure Ovechkin did it last year, but just because Crosby's a very high profile prospect doesn't mean he's going to come in and score at will. Just be patient. Spezza and Bouwmeester never lit it up as 16 year olds and both are high profilers as well. Spezza never had a huige offensive tourny last year and look how he's doing now?

I also thought Crosby had a good 3rd. He never got any points (I dont think it went in before the buzzer did it?) but he created opportunities. Remember some people were 8 years older or something like that. I think he'll do alright.

just my 2 cents tho
