One guy not talked to much about (well other than the Flyers board and by people watching) is Shayne Gostisbehere. Peters said he has been the most impressive defender so far in the camp. Was a darkhorse to make the squad in the beginning, but his play should push him into a roster spot.
Probably the best Swedish forward, created quite a few chances on his own but did not really get much help from his linemates. Scored a goal in the third that was waved off for some reason, he also made some great dangles right before the final whistle.
Watched the game vs Sweden and Galchenyuk just makes it look so easy. He can do whatever he wants with the puck and is an elite passer. Reminds me a lot of Malkin. First time I've seen him play a full game and he didn't disappoint!
Seth Jones is incredible and I wish there were a way for the Habs to get him without having to suck again!
Great to see Gostisbehere and Reilly continue to play so well. They both bring games that Housley will love.
Agreed. Housley's probably having flashbacks watching Reilly play. If both these guys stay to form, we could have a really nice balance on the blueline. The skill level overall looks exceptionally high.
No surprises on the scratches. Last chance for the staff to get a look at the rest of the players and if the tournament were to start next month, all those scratched players would be locks for the team. They all did their jobs to make a strong impression on the staff, now they just have to play well and keep that impression alive for the next 5 months.
