There are plenty of issues that could be brought up but the biggest question I have is why doesn't Jack Eichel find his way onto the score sheet more? I've seen him enough to know his skill set is exceptional and he seemed to create something every time he was on the ice. Milano and Wilkie aren't nearly as good as him but they seem like they should be good enough to complement him. It's just strange. I'll be interested to see if he gets on the score sheet more if they bring him up to the U18 team later in the year.
This version of the swedish u-17 is unusually good i reckon. The swedish 1996-s so far looks like one of our strongest age-groups in a while. (unlike the 1995's that looks a bit weaker than we are used too).
