Laffer picked it out of the air, then tucked it in a 4" gap. I feel like he's the next Crosby.

Laffy will be a top player, but lets not forget Crosby was having an impact as a 16 year old (5 points in 6 games). Last year (at 17) Laffy barely played and had 1 goal/point all tournament. At 17 Crosby was on the 1st line and had a GPG and 9 points total in 6 games. Laffy is elite but Crosby is generational top 5 player ever. Can't compare the 2.

Wow 

What a game to be at. Looked like 70% Canadians in attendance 

Shaky start but we started skating, few big hits and the game started to swing our way

Best to limit penalties and we need to work on a better kill

Momentum back and forth all game

 

Wow so glad to be here

 

Go Canada go

 

 

 

 

So jealous. Promising myself to go next time its in Europe.

Do it.  Although Sweden will be a lot more expensive than the Czech Republic.

You sure those were actually 'beer' lines...? :ph34r:

I've tried Czech beer. That's a legit question.

Can't compare the two "yet".  I see every reason to be stoked about this kid ... if he barely played, what are you assessing against?  Use last game to see his something pretty special.

Does the Canucks has a legit chance at drafting Alexis Lafrenière?

Only if we bottom out and get lucky in the draft.  So likely...no.

I wouldn't undersell the talent on the US team this year. Canada did a good job of using physicality to limit the offense the Americans could generate at 5 on 5.

 

The Americans kept the game close despite minimal contributions from Caufield, Zegras, and Turcotte. If they can find a way to get those guys going (Zegras and Turcotte were playing in the bottom six for some reason), I figure the US will do fine.

 

I'm just not excited by the team as a whole this year.  A few bright spots with the rest seemingly pedestrian.

Surprise twilight, they are alive!,,

 

eat those negative words and I hope you get indigestion 

 

Go Canada go

It was a rough start but a nice rebound. Not being negative, justt being real, looking how the team looked before the tournament started, It didn't look like the strongest team while everyone else seemed to have gotten better. The game against Russia is a big one

Lafrienere is an unquestionable talent, love his willingness to throw the body too. 

 

No doubt the top 2 picks are both playing for Canada. Byfield is an incredibly fast/smooth skater for how big he is, haven't seen him play till this tournament & that stands out immediately.

Joke all you want but I've had zero complaints so far, especially for the price.

Probably because I was at a Fogg N' Suds and we tried it. Might be one of those situations where the beer they export is crap, and the beer they produce locally is great. 

But when I tried it, it tasted like I was drinking water mixed with the stuff from an ashtray.

this year's US team isn't exactly overly talented so I'm not even sure they'll do well enough to see Canada again.

 

Was I right or was I right....?
