If he brings the effort and gets the confidence he will definitely be a guy who you love to have on your team (at least most nights). We can only hope that Armia realizes that he won't have success in the big league with just his talent and doesn't become one of those "what if"-guys.
Such a dominant effort against Canada to two average efforts against the other teams and he still manages to be productive, if only he could play with the intensity he played with against Canada all the time.

Asking him to play with that intensity all the time might be a tad much, but I think that Armia will figure out how much effort he needs (answer: a lot) in order to climb his way from the AHL up to the big league. At the same time should develop his game to be a tad more straighforward, but we will see.

Only 17 too, has the potential to become an elite player IMO.

And a German dive draws a on 5on3.

The german forward look like he got hit by a truck going 60 when McCabe barely touched him.

Nice to get a head start on the goal differential race with Canada.

Eh, they've got to take one of the Russia or Canada games. I suspect the Russians shake off their slow start against the Slovaks and hand the US all they can handle.

I'll cheer for the US, but I also I want Grigorenko to have a big game. Something like a 3 point night for him, but the US wins 4-3.

Makarov getting the start for Russia today. I'm hoping for a 1-0 win for the US with Grigorenko creating all kinds of pressure but can't capitalize.

It's like there are neon distractions behind the nets. Those outfits have to be cold.

Just like in the U18-tournament a while back Armia has to be the playmaker when Markus Granlund can't do that and Miikka Salomäki not playing well either. Armia creating some chances for the linemates, the couple of times he actually got the puck while being at a decent speed there was also chance for him, but overall seemed pretty frustrated out there and has also been losing the puck way too much. Hopefully wakes up with the team after this 3-1 loss to the Czechs.

Yes he is.

And USA takes another dumb penalty and their going to the PK again. Third time in 12 minutes? Not good.

Weak call on Gibson. Have to let a goalie move within his crease.

McCabe with a real strong check on Khokhlachev. Grigo looking generally good. Even though he hasn't scored, none of his shots have been handled cleanly, and his passing is refreshingly crisp.

USA needs to stay out of the box. 4 penalties in a period isn't going to fly.

Agreed on both counts. Liking McCabe's energy on the PK and Grigorenko just keeps finding those seems.

Given the four Russian PP, pretty solid period from the US. Makarov looked really good while US carried most of the play at even strength.

Didn't notice Grigorenko a ton out there.

Wasn't all that impressed with Jones in the first game but he was a monster out there in the first period.
