agree that Huberdeau has looked disappointing at times. Just seems to be fighting the puck a bit and not using his linemates as best he could

Huberdeau by a mile. Drouin is better than him right now, regardless of their age

Guess, the almighty R. N. H. is the center of every scoring chance, every goal, every offensive creation, take-aways, puck-battles..

Next to nothing?

These posts are just getting ridiculous.

True but to be fair, he seems to be doing just fine in the KHL. These tournaments are such a small sample size, people tend to react way to harshly based on how a player does in a single tournament.

I still remember how Kessel and Frolik were locks for 1&2 after one tournament according to HFboards. Good times

Nathan Mackinnon for me. He hasn't put up the numbers I was expecting. He hasn't shown anything to be bumped up from the 4th line

Team Finland.

On a more serious note: Yakupov, Galchenyuk, Armia (yea he scored 2 goals today, but thats about it), Barkov, Määttä.

Yakupov. He hasn't dominated as much as I thought he would.

At worst Huberdeau has been Canada's 4th best forward (RNH, Scheifle, Strome). Now that Jenner is back and Drouin is getting top line duties, that could change, but Huberdeau has not been bad at all.

Hamilton struggled early but was money today.

Reilly s been great had a rough first period today. That kid s offensive instinct s are amazing and his speed is great.

Jones is a 17 year old and is probably the USA s second best d behind trouba. (arguably)

For me it's yakupov faksa Barkov lipon grigorenko Grimaldi

You obviously didn't watch a single game.

"has been fine" is a disappointment for Huberdeau, isn't it?


Steve Spott would be on my list of dissappointments.... but I already knew he was a tool.

As far as forwards go, I guess it has to be Yakupov...he seems to be having a hell of a time playing in the system Russia`s implementing.
As a Bruins fan it pains me but I must agree. Dougie hasn't been the worst but he has been disapointing. As a returnee I expected more

He was probably your best player. One of the few guys who showed up for the tournament.

Hamilton and Jones in terms of actual play, Gaudreau in terms of results. I've liked the way Gaudreau has played to some extent, but I was kind of hoping he'd blow the doors off the tournament for the US.

I can't believe all the flak MacKinnon is taking. He's 17 years old, he has 2 more tournaments to play in possibly, and is playing a limited role. Crosby only had 5 points in his first WJHC.

Of course the WJC is a small sample size and should not be weighted heavily (if at all) on a prospect's future. My disappointment with Huberdeau stems back to last year's Memorial Cup when two 5 foot 8 twins got into his head and hurt his team's chances at the tournament. You can't honestly say you would build a team with Huberdeau over Strome, Drouin, MacKinnon, RNH, etc. Huberdeau is a disappointment as a third overall pick who was supposedly good enough for the NHL back in October.

He did the best he could. This is the level he's on at the moment. He wasn't among our worst under performers by any means.

Ryan Murphy is the only canadian defenceman without points so far.

Guy that was picked because of his point production ability.
