In case anyone has missed the games, we've been keeping a running tab on stats, including some game notes for all the Habs prospects involved.

Habs WJC scoring

And here's a recap from the game today, including the highlights.
Canada vs Switzerland Game Recap and Highlights


aaaaaaand, I'm done spamming the thread with relevant information.

Good tourney from Reway. He looked absolutely exhausted at the end with Sweden keying in on him constantly, but a great result for the diminutive forward nonetheless.

I think it's safe to say he's our most ready prospect at the WJC. Great tenacity, good speed, and smart positioning.

If players like him, McCarron, Crisp, etc develop, THEN we can be a dumb and chase team.

Just because he didn't take the college route doesn't make him dumb

I'd rather Eller taking care of himself before taking rookies off his wing.

I wasnt a fan of the Fucale pick at all, I thought we drafted him based on needs instead of going for the BPA, I also thought he was hyped due to the stacked team he has in Halifax.. Well I made a rookie mistake, never bet against Timmins.. I started to change my mind when I saw him play during pre-season, I liked his calm and solid technic.. Now, on the spotlight, with a ton of pressure on the shoulders, he is even more impressive.. Goaltenders take longer to develop but Im now pretty confident to see him develop in a very good NHL starter.. Time will tell, but it looks like an awesome pick right now..

I was actually surprised he got to us at 36, tbh.

Well it was a very deep draft and drafting goaltenders in the first round is usually a big gamble since they take very long to develop, they usually hit their prime at 26 to 30 years old.. In an average draft year, Fucale is no doubt a first round pick..

Also, Timmins was very high on him since he evaluated Sabres' goaltending depth before picking De la rose 34th overall thinking the chances were very slim Buffalo would draft a goaltender.. If the risk had been too high, Fucale would have been picked 34th over De la rose and fingers crossed that Buffalo dont pick our Swe Boy with their 35th pick..

The teams that really needed goalies picked too high to take him in the first but not quite high enough to get him in the second. Edmonton traded their second after we took Fucale iirc.

I was convinced Calgary would pick him with their 28th overall but they decided to draft Klimchuk..

I thought it was Carolina's pick and they traded it as soon as we drafted DLR, as that was their target. That's when Timmins and crew got nervous but you're right Fucale was higher on their list than DLR they just knew Carolina was going for DLR and not a goalie.

All you need to know about Fucale is, back in early camp days Sutter once asked Fucale what he should call him, Zach or Zachary. Fucale's answer: "Champion".

You guys are bordering on stalkers now

What I really love about his game is that 95% of the time he knows where to be when settled in either zone: supporting his linemates. That's IQ.
