Agreed and I have really not been "wow'd" by MacKinnon's game just yet. Hard to judge players by one tournament but I was hoping to see the reason why this kid was hyped so much. So far it seems his teammate is stealing the show.

Hard to wow people when you are getting buried on the 4th line averaging 5 minutes of ice time.

Speaks to his play in camp/overall though if Drouin has earned the higher roster spot.

Part of me still thinks Puempel should have been on the team instead of Drouin. Agree, no?

Drouin plays on the wing tho. Less depth there.

No but maybe made it as a top 9 winger with all these injuries and suspensions.

Off to bed, longggggg night/morning, haha. Hopefully someone can recap the 2nd and 3rds for me!

Elias Lindholms dad had some minutes in the same Line as #99 in LA King back in da days! Elias Lindholm has great potential and i rank him very high of players that playes/Played in Brynäs. If he continue
to develop we got another great export.

I would've been happy if Puempel was on the team, but I like our forwards as is.

No. Puempel probably could have gotten a camp invite, but he was always in tough to make the actual team.

Does anyone yell at the TV like I do whenever Ryan Murphy makes a stupendously bad play like he so often has done this tournament? I'm not the only one who thinks he's been terri-bad, am I?

Lindholm controls the play years beyond his age. What a talent in all facets of the game. So far I've seen only few outplay his performances and those are the top prospects like Galchenyuk and Nugent-Hopkins.

Canada is so biased towards 19 year olds, it's not even funny.

Murphy hasn't improved the past 2 years. He hasn't, at all. In fact he might be worse. Yet now he magically makes the team? Just further proof that they don't take the best players.

Murphy is pure garbage. He's lost with anything defensive. He tries to force everything in offensive situation. I cant believe he made the team.

No you're not. I shudder every time he comes out to QB the powerplay..

I prefer Reilly in his spot instead on the number 1 unit.

Might as well have brought out Ceci instead, at least he can make a contribution 5 on 5.

Really been impressed as well. Such a crafty pivot. Really reminds of a young Marc Savard out there. Would love to have him on the Senators

Ever since the 2011 draft when posters here randomly started ranking him ahead of Noesen, I have not been a fan of Puempel. His offensive game is not complete enough - he is slow, doesn't have great vision or hockey IQ, but he is a decent shooter and is alright at banging in loose pucks. I doubt he makes the show, considering all that and his lack of a defensive game.

Would be so sick. Drouin just doesn't stop getting better it seems.
