Did he play against men or boys?

Forsberg has a lot of talent but has yet been unable to translate that talent to the NHL level. If this tournament reminds him of the talent he possesses and gives him some confidence, great ... but it is not like he's playing against NHL caliber rosters right now. There are lessons that he needs to apply for the great U18 star to develop into one at the NHL level.

Praying that we can draft a true top 3 player, but not holding out hope with Poile's history.
Nah...we will either win the lottery and pick Ekblad or we will pick somewhere in the top 10 and Ekblad will fall to us and Poile will run to the podium to make the pick for another RH D-man...

No, he'll pick another defensively responsible forward with third line potential. 2014 is an even year.

FF tied with Mantha for first in pts. 3G-8A is 5 games. Finn goalie Saros looks like top goalie

A real captains performance.

He is so good at this level right now it's a sight to behold. Hits, skates hard, wicked shot. He looks really involved as captain of the team and carries himself impressively in nationally televised interviews.

Would be very surprised if he didn't become a productive NHL player in the long run.

Yeah and what was the breakdown of even strength vs power play points and how many goals did he stop? What was the age difference of the players on the ice during his points?

Did he go to the hard areas?

Because he's yet to transition his talent to the NHL game. Doing well against teenagers is one thing ... stepping up to compete against NHL talent is something else all together.

Playing against boys vs playing NHL veterans is why. All in due time.

Well he's only played 17 games and he just turned 19 in August for starters.

I wasn't a fan of him last WJC but even I am starting to give in to the hype. He will become a very good NHL forward, loads of speed, nice vision, compete, strength and a good (almost great) shot.

To start, competition is about 10x more difficult. Defensemen especially are a different beast in the NHL.

The list of WJC scorers that didn't cut in the NHL is miles long.

But we have few offensive hopefuls, so we are putting all our marbles that Forseberg lives up to the name on the back of his jersey.

We are also looking for reasons to hate Trotz, so if 19 year old rookie doesn't come in make an immediate impact on the scoring line, it's probably Trotz's fault.

Wow this kid can' t win with you guys. Currently leading the tournament with 12 points in 4 games. More than a certain J. Drouin, a person many of you clamored for at the draft. He's playing against teenagers so it doesn't hold any water? I suppose if he was sitting there with 1 or 2 points this board would be screaming 'bust' from the top of Bridgestone.

And he also seems to be tearing it up in the AHL as well....but they are 'easy' points he's scoring. I feel sorry for this teenager having some of you rag on him no matter what he does.

It's terrible isn't it. When he scored here people were criticizing how many of his points were PP points

No one is ragging on him. Just setting expectations appropriately at the NHL level.

Very simply, credit is earned and his NHL level play hasn't earned it. When it does, he'll get credit for his performance. What has he actually DONE at the NHL level to deserve praise?
