Seth Jones, imo, has been pretty damn imnpressive from what I have seen of him. Big, strong kid who, imo, is the first pick overall.


I have been unimpressed with Yak, see that even at the WJC, teams have started to focus on him and now I cant wait to see whats in store for him at the NHL level.


Oilers should have traded out of that pick and got some defenseman. I dont think the futures gonna be good for one Yakupov, but thats just me.

Huberdeau has been disappointing, but not every player picked third overall is going to be a bona fide stud.
As an Oilers' fan, it hurts to say that Yakupov has been extremely disappointing. His decision making is questionable, but he will be a great player.

I still remember how Kessel and Frolik were locks for 1&2 after one tournament according to HFboards. Good times
This. A lot of people are seeing some of these players for the 1st time and make their judgements based off of how they do in this tourney. Some guys never really find chemistry or struggle for whatever reason. Then some guys find chemistry and have a good tourney. It's pretty funny to see the overreaction on both ends. Look at Jerry D'Amigo from a couple of years ago. That guy went from a decent prospect to Toronto's 1st line rw in 2 weeks.

So true. And when you consider the ice time he is getting you have to wonder if Spott is thinking with his heart a little more than with his head.

I would have picked Murphy, but he's pretty much what I expected, that is Canada's worse defenceman but a wide margin

Holy crap, that's crazy!
With the amount of powerplay and even strength time that guy gets, you'd have to think he'd have accidentally gotten a point by now.

I admit, I like to see Murphy's rushes with the puck, but that's pretty much his only trick. I'd say he's played like the 7th D-Man on Team Canada, though his icetime suggests otherwise.

I wouldn't call Murphy a disappointment either, because I didn't expect anything from him in the first place.

He didn't look that good against Canada. If I'm drafting a D 1st overall he better be able to clear the front of the net. The Canadian forwards consistently beat him to the front of the net and went where they wanted to. He didn't look very hard to play against in his own end and he seemed to chase the puck a lot, both Canadian goals were due to him being out of position.

Hamilton, Barkov, Yakupov and Jones have not played up to their potentials at all. All were expected to be go to guys for their teams but they all have pretty much fell short.

People are disappointed in Scheifele? By my reckoning he's been Canada's second best forward.

For the Czechs definitely Faksa. Musil probably should be better as well.

To be fair to at least Barkov and Jones, they have been sound defensively, good along the boards and add to that Barkov has been very effective on the face-off dot. Yakupov isn't being used effectively in Russia's gameplan. Of Hamilton I haven't been able to construct a clear picture, propably he has his good aspects to his game also. All things can't be seen from the stats, and in Barkov's and Jones' case they also have a couple of years to develop. It's not like it's usual for 17 year olds to carry their teams.

Barkov was also the best center for Finland in the tournament. Can't say he was the best player but the best center no doubt.

agreed on Jones. At his age, the flashes he's shown have been outstanding. He's by no means a complete player yet, he oozes upside, nowhere close to the player he can become. I suspect he'll be the best player of anyone we've seen in this tournament by the time he's 24-25 outside MAYBE RNH (who has been simply outstanding)


Yakupov has looked terrible. I'm shocked by this.

Grigorenko has a reputation of not playing well when it matters, against tougher competition. This is one of the reasons why he fell at the draft. Hopefully, for his sake, he can overcome this as he matures.

D. Hamilton hasn't had a great tournament, I expected more from him and Rielly but they haven't been awful either.

Huberdeau's not been good.

Martin Reway and Tomas Mikus. Although I wish he would have got the chance to play with Dano on the first line.

Based on this tournament only:

CAN: Huberdeau can be a lot better; he's trying to be too fancy. Ryan Murphy.
US: Grimaldi, Gaudreau, Miller; Kuraly, Barber (not that they were supposed to be great, but they're weighing Gally down ; at this point in his development, Gally can't make them better to the point where they can compete with the world's best juniors)
RUS: Yakupov

Ryan Murphy has been absolute trash. How do you get 0 points playing on team Canada's pp all the time?

Huberdeau hasn't been as bad as people are making him out to be.

Galchenyuk has been unimpressive.

Team Russia and Finland have been disappointing overall.

Ya, he's been fine. Playing a different position, but putting up some points for TC and 2 gwg, to date. I'm not sure we could expect much more out of him, tbh.

I like how Strome and Drouin have played, as well, so i'm not placing Scheifele as near the top of the forward list, but he's ahead of most, imo.

He's being targeted by defenders I'm sure. He's arguably the best forward they have, and undoubtedly will be in the future.

Dougie Hamilton for sure. He's supposed to be the best defenceman on the team and yet he's been bottom 3 every game so far with Murphy and Reinhart.

Yakupov hasn't done a thing really to warrant the hype he has and he couldn't do anything against Canada in the biggest game yet for the Ruskies.

Also I don't know what the expectations were for him, but JT Miller sucks. I'm putting him here since he was penciled in as one of the top 2 centres for the US.

Being second in the tournament in points while being unimpressive is pretty impressive for a 2012 drafted forward getting 15min of icetime (probably much less in the Svk game) and playing with the likes of Kuraly at center, heheh.
