    Is Pinto playing in the showcase? If yes, is he showing well? Thought he looked pretty decent at camp. He kinda reminds me of White, Norris, Lazar, Formenton etc. Atheltic with some skill and finish.

    Apparently he is on Team USA's Blue roster. Gruden is also on that team, no clue how either have played or if they have, I haven't been following too close.

    Pinto and Gruden played last night in 6-0 win. Didn't register on the board. Kaliyev had 2g 1a.

    Don't think either had their best games.

    Thomson was great defensively. Was physical and used his speed to his advantage when defending, but showed sub-par decision making with the puck and didn't get a chance to show off his shot. Was playing on the #2 PP behind Heinola and Honka, which was surprising.

    Tychonick looked overmatched. Not good enough offensively to be a PP guy, not good enough defensively to be a key PKer. Doesn't look promising for him to make the team.

    Quite predictable. I still do not understand passing on him.

    Got to see a few mins of Drake Batherson training with Crosby and the others. He's a stud, he's just so damned smooth. I hate the Penguins but holy hell is Crosby on another level. There were quite a few people on the ice (def Marchand but not sure I saw MacKinnon) but Crosby sticks out immediately. Drake does too because of his size.

    Also, call me crazy but I think Jack Hughes was there too. I could have sworn it was him but I couldn't stay to check it out.

    Anyway, it was only 2 or 3 mins of live viewing, but Drake is hard at it this summer and looks amazing. That is all, carry on with your day.

    Yeah it was Hughes.

    Along with Marchand, Batherson, Crosby, Mack, Shaw, MacDonald, both Barrons (I believe, at least 1) plus other high end guys depending on the skate.

    Tychonick's biggest problem (imo) are his pivots. He does fine winning puck battles in the defensive zone, and he's obviously a good puck mover when he has it on his stick, but he's really struggled in these summer games to pivot with a forward attacking. Teams attack him to the outside every chance they get. He's a good skater, but loses a step when transitioning. Led to the Thomson goal against Finland.

    Hopefully more playing time at UND helps him get up to speed.

    On another note, Byram and Lavoie are dominant.

    His skating problem sounds correctable. Hopefully he overcomes it.

    We all knew Tychonick was going to be a project, we just have to be patient with him and let him bake.

    Pinto was pretty much invisible. Didn't do a whole lot to improve his chances of making the team.

    Still not sold on his upside. Reminds me quite a bit of Bowers, who I project as a 3rd/4th line guy at best.

    Thought Gruden was pretty impressive though. Great IQ and work ethic. Expecting good things from him in London this year.

    He released 51 to 100 on his twitter feed.

    Formenton 93
    Thomson 86
    Norris 72
    Brown 69

    No sign of JBD. I assume Wolanin and Jaros were inelligible.

    Funny because I hold JBD in higher regard than all of those prospects aside from maybe Brown.

    Yeah same here, though i also like Thomson about the same.

    That said i don't begrudge anyone for having those guys in a different order, they all have their arguments
