Which 5 players from the 7 big countries have been the biggest surprises and biggest disappointments`so far this tourney? My lists: Surprises: 1 Rick Nash - Knew he was a scorer, but not this good 2 Eric Cole - Not just showing great work ethics, but scoring too. 3 Niklas Kronwall - Has taken his great play in AHL to the Worlds, impressive. 4 Alexander Ovechkin - Hyped and just one goal so far, but have exceptional speed. 5 Mikael Samuelsson - A small surprise on the swedish roster, but has been one of Swedens best players. Disappointments: 1 Ed Jovanovski - Seems to be totally lost on the D, but he's not alone. 2 Dany Heatly - Last years MVP haven't been close to last years performance. 3 Mike Modano - Has looked tired, but have stepped up last games. 4 Maxim Afinogenov - Skating as always, but seems to be unable to score. 5 Mike York - Hasn't barely seen him, outplayed by players like Yan Stastny. EDIT. Bad spelling.
