He's got a hell of a lot of skill. If I didn't know anything about him and MacKinnon going into this tournament I would be all over Drouin and wonder what the hype with MacKinnon is. Although MacKinnon can fly when he gets some open ice. He just has not done much in this tournament.
I'm getting mighty sick of Schiefle looking for calls. It's embarrassing. Did it all of last game and here with that last hit.
Yeah... that was pretty embarrassing. I don't get how you can do something like that, especially on national TV with replays... Do you really want to be labelled as a diver?
Also that setup with nuge and scheifele both behind the goal line is stupid. It doesn't work when you don't have anyone out front with a shot. They need to stop that. Anytime two of your most dangerous scorers are behind the net theres a problem.
RNH was terrible on draws tonight, I'd be surprised if he won 25% of them TBH. The whole top line left something to be desired tonight IMO. Did MacKinnon get hurt it seemed like he barely played in the 2nd and 3rd.
Fair enough. For an offensive d-man his hockey IQ seems poor, his passing isn't that great, and his shot isn't finding the back of the net. Yes he's a very good skater but he has left a lot to be desired in this tournament.
RNH dodged a bullet there. Also how can a junior team that has RNH on their PP be as bad as Canada has been?
To be fair they were pretty good before tonight. Pregame show said they were a tournament best 4 for 10 in the first two games.
But yeah, they were awful on the PP tonight.
Mr Spott has some work to do.
That may be true, but they couldn't even get anyone open on a full two minute five on three. That's sad.
Yeah, definitely got some work to do.
They're trying that 2 fwd behind the net passing back & forth play to set up the d in the slot, but the Americans and Gibson were ready for that probably after seeing the game tape when we scored one like that against either the Germans or the Slovaks.
