Best part is if one of their teams winds up drafting him you will never hear a negative thing about him from half the fans pretending he is garbage right now. He will be a saint that can do no wrong.

Being the coach's favourite player helps.

Subban was good. I still think that Canada was sloppy with the puck; it needs improvement. What's with so many players falling in this tournament?

I'm really impressed with Reilly... Give this man more ice-time (especially on the PP), and Murphy on the bench.
Exactly!!! If Rielly had a better partner he would look a lot better, ******* honestly I can't understand these pairings at all.

I saw Grimaldi and Galchenyuk on a line together for a bit. Tough to see on the internet stream.

Other than that not much to report.

Not good so far.
Not good for the US and people whose only exposure to him will come from this tournament.

This feels like a fabricated "the world is against us" thing. i think the kid is great. TSN has been talking him up. I don't see anyone hating on him, really.

You're thinking of Dumba...He's more of a long term project.

Doubtful, USA seems to give players a role and keep them there forever(see Zucker point per game goal scorer in NCAA and now AHL, 3rd line checker on USA).

Gibson was very good. Breakaway stop on Drouin and glove save on Schieflie were amazing. If US comes back in this game, those saves will be looked upon as game savers for sure.

You saw right.

I agree that Murphy is an absolute thrash to watch...it disgusts me. Should have let Pouliot make the team. Chemistry with Wotherspoon and Rattie at least..not a relationship with the head coach.

I couldn't have said it better myself. Other than Gibson, the MVP for the Americans thus far.
