(of course only if we play more than just this series)

He has the speed, hands and shot for sure, already better than DD by a mile, looks way better than Palushaj and Bjugstad (who I'm a huge fan of) and who he is on a line with right now. Could be a better option than Dumont seriously...but coach might not have faith in his knowledge of the system at these crucial times...

Mark Stone, Silvferberg and others made the jump last year in the playoffs for other teams...It is pretty common these days.
How hurting is Team USA that Aaron Palushaj made the squad?

With that being said though, I think they have him in the WC to have him playing rather than sitting on the bench. If the Bulldogs made the playoffs, they could have done the same thing if they wanted to have him playing vs. and with better players.
I remember in 2007 when they won the calder, Halak was the starting goalie all year but they let him play for Slovakia in the WC and put in Price
