WJCs kick off today. Russia and USA with the nightcap tonight.
Uggh. Ruskies up one halfway through the first.
Tied up, 5 to go in the first.
Americans simply wet the bed. But hey, who cares! Russia all the way.
I thought USA did ok, just a couple of weak goals did them in. Round robin is just a warmup anyway
Curious to see how McMichael does here. I have very high expectations for him and with Dach out he's going to have to be good if they want to win again. Good enough to be top scorer?
There's a chance. I think Canada probably should load up a line rather than spread things out but that balance gives McMichael a better chance compared to him not being on a juiced line. He is on their top PP unit but he may have a tougher time leading them in scoring at center. It's not impossible and he's been pretty involved offensively but overall Cozens is a safer bet for top scorer (though his new linemates in Holloway & Newhook haven't been great thus far).
huge moment for this kid. heavy expectations....
1+2 would be a nice debut....
Um what? Holloway and Newhook have been great, Cozens has been the underwhelming one of the three. But anyways I think McMichael has a great shot at being Canada's leading scorer.
Eh, just my limited observation. They've been fine but nothing particularly warranting top line duty. I might be a little too bullish on Cozens since he's not terribly dynamic himself but he'll find it eventually. The raw tools are there.
McMichael's crafty enough to do it. He's probably one of the three most likely to do it and if his line with Perfetti & Krebs gels quicker than the rest it's very possible.
Fair enough. I might have a bit of bias as an Oilers fan (also a Caps fan dw) but I think both Holloway and Newhook have played well. I really like Holloway, having watcged his college games as an Oilers fan. My less than stellar review of Cozens is solely based on the pre-tournament game against Russia. Thought the play died every time he got the puck. But that's a one game sample.
CZE’s goalie is the son of Marek Malik, famed shootout specialist for the New York Rangers.
I haven't been this excited to watch a Caps player in the world Juniors since Kuznetsov.
Let's go McMike.
How can you watch this? Trying to find it online
His second assist was nice
This Canada Germany game is coming down to the wire. Exciting stuff!
Shorty snipe ConMac.
I’m honestly to the point I wish he would have skated it behind the net and left it. Pitt is the only team I like to see get beat like this
Was pretty sad...
I guess Cozens answered that lol
