    Impressive to be this wrong. Couldn't go wrong with either choice of Sandin or Romanov though.

    Hoglander was consistently good and definitely was a top candidate for MVP. However, there was nothing marginal about that call. There were a number of reckless and outright dangerous hits in this tournament and that was definitely among them.

    Hard to tell IMO. It was definitely heading out but if it hit the part of the camera that extends over the ice surface first then it's a good call because there's an exception in the rules for hitting any structure over the playing surface. If it cleared the glass first and then hit a part of the camera that was outside of the ice surface then it's not a good call.

    The best replay I've seen is from camera itself which means you can't really get a conclusive look. If I had to say one way or the other I would say the puck probably cleared the glass first and it was a bad call.

    If USA advances to the medal round, Zegras is taking a spot among the forwards for sure.
    He was really great in the group stage.

    Was waiting for this narrative to creep out from the casuals. Fyi, the book on him when he was drafted was he is a two-way D with more D than O. And if you've watched him play for any length of time you'd know that's true. He was being played 30+ minutes a game in the AHL playoffs as an 18 year old which is unheard of, he's solid defensively.

    The difference between him and Romanov is Romanov is aggressive, which makes him exciting; lots of emotion, big hits, he's a fantastic player.

    I think only one 5-on-5... He was pretty outstanding defensively. Arguably more than Romanov.

    I don't think you are crazy, no. He was excellent. Only difference is Romanov and Sandin have been very good for several years now. I don't follow Soderstrom closely enough to know if this is how good he normally looks or if it's just a small sample size.
