the loss of Eichel was too much for the US to overcome...hopefully they can still pull out a bronze as it would still be meaningful for these kids to win a medal.

Lot's of great individual players but not so hot as a team. Weak in net as well based on the fact that they were missing the best U17 goalie in the province due to injury.

You never know with team games in a short tournament. Should be a good final.

I was impressed by some of the US players in the semi. Tuch, Milano, Wilkins, Bjork, the goalie, whose name unfortunatley have escaped me for the moment, all did good. Tuch is hard working, a good skater, good on the PK, and have a nice set of tools to work on. Milano made things happen all the time he was on the ice, same with Wilkins. I mentioned Bjork (his name is hillarious by the way, we had a swedish Secretary of Defense named Anders Björck once) in an earlier post; also a hard working two way player with a nice set of tools to work on.

I had expected more from players like MacInnis (he do not have his father slapper, but a lot of heart and some still pretty raw skills), Turgeon (did good defensivley, but was a bit invisible in the offense) and Wesley (looked a bit confused at times, but good size), but hey, they are all still very young. Didn't notice Iverson at all. If he wasn't injuried or scrapped, he was very invisible.

Over all, I'd say US will have some interesting players in WJC 2015, or 2016.

As a Canadian it really hurts to see all of the off spring of Canadian NHL players playing for the USA. I understand they are Americans born and bred but it hurts that so many Canadians have to leave home to make a living.

Imagine the offspring of Peyton Manning, Ray Rice, and Tom Seaver playing for Canada.

Great for hockey I guess.

The goalie is Chris Birdsall who plays for Cedar Rapids of the USHL. He just turned 16 years old in late November and is a 2015-2016 Boston College commit.

Yeah, it's really impressive considering no Canada team is involved in this game.

They're not gonna rest Nylander much tonight it seems. Long shift to draw a penalty, and right back out there on the PP.

I have not been following the tournament that much, but was wondering what players are you talking about that are playing for USA that have Canadian Connections?

If those athletes had played in Canada, settled there after retiring, and sired and raised in their adopted cities kids who went on to play for Canadian teams your comparison would be valid.

1-0 Russia, poor communication between Lagesson and Nylander right in front of own goal.
1-1 Franzen mere seconds later.

Funky accent on that announcer. "Gewl. In front of the gewl. It wasn't a powerplay gewl."

2-1 Nikolishin, bomb from the point.
Timashov's best shift in the tournament, nice pass to Kovacs for 2-2.

Nikolishin looks like the best player on the Russian team, always on the ice and always dangerous.
