i'm actually looking forward to seeing johnny gaudreau play for USA. also, the shinkaruk/schremp comparison is junk, mainly because shinkaruk can skate.

I can't see him going 1st (or even 2nd for that matter), and that's not a knock on him. MacKinnon and Jones are just that good. IMO, you trade up to 3rd, not 1st.

Shinkaruk can't skate that well. He's been completely neutralized whenever the I've watched him and the other team has a decent dman. He reads the play well, and is a fantastic playmaker/scorer, but he's absolutely hopeless one on one

that's funny because the two times i've watched him live he's been great.

It's not like I have anything against him. I want to like him, but he's got some major flaws in his game. I'm certainly not the only one either

Have to agree with you there, I mean I've only seen him once but in that game he didn't impress me at all.

I was impressed, but he did really go to a couple moves time and time again, NHL defenders will key in on stuff like that and he will lose much of their effectiveness unless he can adapt. I am eager to watch him in the WJC and see what he does over the course of a game compared to a highlight clip.

Definitely. I'm stoked to see what he can do against the best competition in his age group.
