Jonathan Drouin has been my favourite player to watch so far.
Mike Reilly has impressed he hell out of me so far, Columbus has something there.
Ryan Strome and Morgan Reilly have been standouts to me as well.

This, although I've only seen Trouba in the one game today. I'd also add Oullette.

Strome, Scheifele, Rattie, Galchenyuk and Trouba.

For Canada specifically, RNH has played exactly how I expected him to (a man amongst boys) and Huberdeau has been slightly disappointing. He has a lot of assists and is tied for 3rd in team/tournament scoring on the "NHL line", but I thought he was going to take this tournament over (a la Tavares or Brayden Schenn).

Clearly most of you guys haven't watched enough of Ouellet to learn how to spell his name.

I have mainly watched Sweden and Finland play. Teravainen has been one of my favorites for a while and one of the most fun players to watch in the tournament, I also like Ristolainen's game. On the swedish team I really like Forsberg and the way he challenges his opponents with his moves, sometimes he tries too hard though. I also dig the way Lindholm handles the puck, so incredibly smooth.

I've really enjoyed watching Ty Rattie thus far. Seems to create tons of scoring chances for himself every game by working hard and going to the right places.

In the little i have seen, RNH obvious step beyond the rest.
Gibson Milleresque performances and Drouin as well as been beautiful to watch dangle.

Have loved watching Rielly and Biggs from a Leafs fans perspective. Also have enjoyed watching Galchenyuk, Dano, Draisaitl, Reway, Subban, Trouba, Gibson, Yakupov and Nugent-Hopkins. From last year I very much enjoyed watching Hertl, Musil, Barkov and Ristolainen, but since they aren't televised in Canada I haven't been able to see them outside of highlights or at all.

Agreed. Teräväinen is the first player to watch from Finland.

So far....

Sigarev
RNH
Trouba
Draisaitl

Those are the only four i've found myself keying on to this point. I never start watching a game with the intent of focusing on any individual so its good on them for drawing so much of my attention to themselves.
