Simple enough question. We all watch our countries out of national pride and other countries out of...well lack of professional hockey and to get glimpses of other prospects.
My list of guys that have really impressed me are
Ryan Nugent Hopkins
Alex Wennberg Oliver Wikstrand
Other players have impressed me as well but so far these guys have impressed me.
EDIT: oh and if at all possible try not to just come in here and say your team's representative has looked good. While I'm on that note Rakell needs to be a little less selfish with the puck and Karlsson needs to play more like he has been in Sweden. This is not the best he can be at all.
Pretty awesome that Galchenyuk has been imoressed just about everybody except the coach
Felipe Forsberg has impressed me a lot, I though that Collberg would end up better because
Forsberg didn't have a lot of hustle in his game, I was wrong. Trouba has more offense in his game that I previously thought as well.
If the Maple Leafs end up with Drouin somehow, I'd be the happiest guy on earth. I think he's going to end up having a better career than MacKinnon. I maybe speaking out of turn though. But he's just so talented. Drouin should really be in the mix for first overall.
Galchenyuk is magical, I still believe Burke would have picked him had he been available. However Morgan Rielly is still a favourable pick for me.
You have to be careful about what makes a great 17 year old player at the WJC and what makes a great pro. There have been a lot of World Junior standouts that have gone onto amazing careers at Dairy Queen.
