While watching this Canada vs Slovakia game.
The canadian team gets rattled in the physical game. However, its only 2 players from Slovakia doing the physical game.

Yeah, I've been wondering about taking Schenn vs. MPS. I'm thinking that maybe we should have taken the risk to get the player with more upside (we're lacking in dynamic offensive players).

What a game, too bad it had to end in a shoot out.

I tend to agree. Somehow that DL quote about going for the meat vs. sexy comes to mind. While it was in reference to the Smyth trade, it also really applied to this year's draft strategy. While I loved the Schenn selection for the look on Burke's face, I also would have preferred for us to trade down and grab MSP, who was always my first choice.

Jake Allen should either be pulled or forced to take the USA jersey off that he's wearing underneath.

It's foolish to judge a draft eligible player on their play in this tournament. It's a tournament for 19 year olds rather than 17 year olds. It's really impressive when a draft eligible player shines at this tournament but I don't think its a knock when a draft eligible player has a bad one. Plus it's not like Hall has been horrible.
