The 7 D-men probably played better defense this game than their coach did in his life. Gibson was fantastic, but he had a ton of support from guys blocking shots, getting in the passing lanes, and playing with active sticks.
Trouba is gonna be a stud. 2018 USA D at the Olympics is gonna be stacked. Vets like Suter, the Johnsons, Yandle, etc combines with Shattenkirk, Jones, Trouba, Fowler, Carlson, McCabe (hey, I'm a homer )...this young group is ridiculously good.
People from the South would love hockey if they were to view it in the proper context. I go to school in the States and converted boys from Mississippi and Louisiana, who were former Div 1 Football and Baseball players, into hockey fans.
EDIT: Congrats to USA, I was cheering for you guys
