    What a crop for the US the 2019 class was. Won junior titles at u17, 18, and 20.

    Awesome tourney for Stutzle and Sanderson. Everything Sanderson does makes me think he’s a 24 year old D out there. Makes the smart play every time. Sens in great shape moving forward.

    More than half the Canadian players already won one, will win one or will win a Olympic gold. It’s nice of them to let one slip to their little brothers from the south.

    :)

    Congrats guys, the us looked better in the first. Didn’t watch the rest of the game but it was probably the same.

    the first period is the first time I watched him attentively and it looks accurate. He seemed slow to react on a lot of plays. The Turcotte goal, he let him get inside him without moving. On a number of other plays he was just standing there.

    he has some potential though, when he closed Turcotte at the beginning of the game it was a impressive play for a guy his size.

    He also continually fired pucks into shins in the offensive zone. It was really bad how he treated the puck like a live grenade.

    only reason I point it out is that I’ve seen quite a few Montreal “media”/former scouts go out of their way to force praise upon him and then completely ignore his flaws.

    Yeah, saw a play where he just got rid of the puck without any pressure on him. He was in his own zone and just shot the puck in the neutral zone. Looked weird.

    If anyone else needed more evidence that Lidstrom is the greatest defenseman of all time.

    Hawks over under on points is 49.5 this year, no way they hit that right? Wings are 43.5 and I'm not sure the Hawks are any better than them right now.

    Hawks don’t even have great AHL caliber goaltending right now, so I would bomb the under hard.

    Dude grew up wealthy and priveleaged in a very racist suburb of Dallas and went into the one sport with the least amount of diversity in it probably because thats what his friends were doing

    Product of his environment

    Laine, terevainen, pettersson, Eichel, bo horvat, Taylor hall, zucker, wennberg, elias lindholm, drouin would be my forwards I would say. I have a few prospects that I won’t dress this year. Zegras, jack hughes, farabee, cozens and Raymond.

    Parayko, sanheim, Chabot, fowler, Ryan murray,ekblad , Dante fabbro on defense with a few prospects. Boqvist, ty smith, Adam fox, seider and miller.

    Lehner, varlamov, mrazek with my prospects being shestorkin and cayden primeau

    I am in the middle of the pack but my team is young. I didn’t list every player. I have a few more. We need 34 active players and it’s a keepers pool. You can have as many prospect as you want but you have 3 years to activate them.
