He wasn't disappointing last game, not at all.

Yakupov has so far been the passer on those great Russian plays. Great vision. This whole tank thing now seems interesting. JK..I think.

He hasn't been great, but hasn't been given much of a chance. Besides how could Murray score a hat trick if he wasn't on the ice all the time.

Which goal can you blame on the goalie?

The 3 that went off Murray, the 2 on 0 brakaway where Oleksiak went to the bench with the play coming...or the one where 4 defenders ignore Kloklacheck(or wahtever his name is) and he scores on a tap in.

Its World Junior officiating. Frustrating but expected.

Disappointed to see Beaulieu not used much, not sure it would have made a difference in this game. Bad mistakes, changes and penalties cost the Canadians in this game. Russian goalie made key saves. Kuznetsov will look good in Washington and Yakupov looks like the real deal.

Tank Habs, tankkkk

I dont understand why Beaulieu is not playing more now that Canada is trailing. Of course I'm biased since he's a habs prospect but when TC was losing against Sweden, he was way more on the ice and he was by far Canada's best offensive D

Dale Hunter's gonna need some pain killers. He reminds me of Semin lots of dash but bails out in the corners.

Pretty sure we were expecting more than that. Just like we had to expect more from the NHL bound guys like Connolly and he started to deliver towards the end. Like I said as well, Scheifele is a huge dissapointment for me.

Jenner is an idiot (it's your country, be the bigger man), but the Huberdeau penalty is consistent with what we saw at the Winter Classic.

I think they'll just fire Hunter and hire Bragin (sp).

We need scorers, we have a ton of passers.

I agree, Gallagher has been a huge dissapointment for me. Bad penalties, lack of finish and rushed a few shots on the PP at times.

I don't watch this kid at all and from what I saw in training camp he is much better than he has played.

I said before the tourney this was one of our weaker teams in a while and they certainly lived up to that.

Still praying for a miracle though!

hehe true. soft passers though. Kind of like Murray on goal 1.

I just meant that Nail seems to be able to do both (not just be a puck magnet).

Because he is the worst of the bunch defensively.. The kid has huge flaws in his game, I saw him panicking way too much when the pressing is high paced..

High celling cause he has some really nice offensive skills, but still a WAY to go.. I say at least 2 years in the AHL..

I think we can all agree that Pierre McGuire's presence around the juniors is required to get to the gold medal game (where they may choke).

At 4-1, who cares. Murray has been incredibly awful tonight. Dougie Hamilton has been really dissapointing. Gormley non-existant etc....At one point, you use what Beaulieu does best. Not on the PK. Not when you lead 2-1. But now was and still is the time. And he's not playing.
