Jenner's was stupid though. The referee was standing right there. We would of had a PP and I believe, at that point, it was only 5-1 still. Selfish play.
Still was a brutal call. No way that's 5 minutes for spearing, ref must have left his jugment at home. Plus the hit should have been a major, you hit somebody in the head with a charge/elbow/headshot and they are bleeding it should be 5.

Murray was pretty bad, but all of that was mostly bad luck, mixed in with some poor positioning (the slide was brutal).

Freddie was pretty ****ing awesome, yep.



I couldn't believe it either! Next thing you know you'll be on the Scotty G train!

Now to find it in my heart to forgive you for hoping Beaulieu never makes it.
The Rangers scouts must have been drunk when they drafted McIlrath instead of Gormley or Fowler.

I find Hamilton massively overrated.

Spearing is always an automatic 5 minute major.

The only time it isn't is when you don't make contact, but I don't recall ever seeing that call made before.

He was on the ice pretty much the hole game with Gormley, normal he makes a bit of mistakes but I find with Gallagher he was probably the best Canadian in the 3rd.

How did you find Beaulieu in this tournament?

Beaulieu sucked on one play. Like the majority of players sucked on one play. And some players cost 2 or 3 goals. The start of the game was the reason we lost. Nobody in the first 2 periods had a good game. That's the reason we lost.
I thought Don Hay's timeout was poorly placed. Obviously, I expected Canada to be a little jumpy right off the start, maybe force certain plays because they want to avenge their loss of last season. But I found they took many bad decisions for a long while.
Forcing shots from the point, not showing patience with the puck, very little creativity with it, etc...
When Russia scored right after we did and made it 3-1, I would have called the time out. The team wasn't focused.
They were getting chances, but as you said, nobody was playing well.


Gotta credit Russia though, I thought they played a very well structured game for the first two periods. Their goalie had to make great saves, and got lucky with some posts, but that's all part of the game.

I loved how Connolly threw Nathan under the bus, like that was the TSN turning point, in his post game interview. I never cared for Connolly much before, not a big fan of his in Prince George, and now I like him even less.

Are you serious?? Connolly was ACTUALLY the failure. He got an immense amount of ice time and aside from the first goal looked like a Hab when it came to being dangerous offensively.

He HAD the game on his stick TWICE and one of those times (the 2 on 1) was a 100%, no question, you don't swing at 3 balls (baseball), automatic pass situation. His selfishness and it was purrrely that, not a braincramp is why we didn't tie the game when we did SO much to come back. What a POS. I think NB just thought there was a whistle, it's nowhere near as reprehensible as trying to be jordan eberle. Pass the puck you @#$#$@. Howden was so open, I wish he threw Connolly under the bus.

You do realize that not only will Beaulieu feel terrorized by this, but he has to wear Yakupov's jersey in his next practice.

Maybe he should wear Nail's Habs jersey.

How did you find Beaulieu in this tournament?
99% of the time all you had to do was look at the end of the bench and you could find him sitting there.

He was ok on the PP but barely used other than that. He wasn't givven a big window to succeed or fail much like Bournival. Gallagher was given a lot of chances and overall played very well, except for a couple penalities.

I thought using Hamilton and Schwartz for about 1:30 min of all PP's was a huge mistake by Don Hay. If you are to make Beaulieu a PP specialist, at least give him premium PP time, especially when your main options aren't doing ****.

Beaulieu wasn't in the game, and I still have a hard time blaming him even though I was very mad at the time. To me, he's simply not a type of player la MAB you can use for 3 minutes a game in key offensive situations and expect him to be at his best. He should've been a regular top-6 throughout the tourney. I was very underwhelmed by Pysyk, and more specifically Oleksiak who brought absolutely nothing to the team other than being big but not using his frame. I thought in general Canada's D, although solid and talented, lacked transitional and offensive prowess. If you're going to cut Ryan Murphy, at least have one PMD in your freakin' top-6!

Pretty amazing ot think a comment is stupid when you don't even understand it.

Beaulieu is going to be a star in the NHL. I have no doubts about it. This tournament means very little to the overall development of players and their transition to the NHL. It's been hyped to the point where it's become absurd, like a handful of games mean that much in the grand scheme of things.

Beaulieu is going to be an impact NHLer. This tournament means nothing. It was upsetting to lose, but it's really not a big deal to me. We completely dominated them from the opening faceoff. At one point, Russia had 7 shots and scored on 5 of them. Pure luck. I'm not sold on Gallagher, does well against other juniors, whether that translate well when playing with men is hard to determine. I don't have doubts with Beaulieu

No, your post just didn't say what you thought it said.

And I stand by it, I think that both possible meanings are silly. Neither of those players will fail to make the NHL.

Gallagher's made a name for himself outworking bigger and stronger players, and that's generally the deciding factor for players his size. The speed issue is overblown. He's plenty fast enough to play in the NHL, especially given that most of his game is not based off the rush like Gionta, but quick and sharp direction changes in the offensive zones.

Why not settle this by admitting BOTH will be successful NHLers?

Bournival didn't convince me he'd be a regular top-9 player though. But he has the work ethic and willingness to make it in my opinion.

I don't understand why it would be a big to anybody not actually involved in it. By ''involved'' I mean either players or the staffs, and their families.
I couldn't care less if Canada won or lost. I watched the game because it's always entertaining to watch talented players, possibly future NHL stars, perform. That includes players from other teams, not just team Canada. I couldn't care less about the outcome of the games, I agree with you.
