    Big fan of Zegras, Lafreniere, Ahlfeldt, Annunenm Seider.

    He's gonna be a good one. Dont know the 2021 crop too well yet to have an opinion of a potential #1 pick but yeah, from what I've seen (limited viewings) he definately look like a superstar in the making.

    Standouts? Can't tell. Neither of my fellow finns have made enough of an impression on me. The swedish dude with the michigan though.

    Disappointment? Whole of team USA. Anyone willing to step on the ice with players like that, and who defend them, shows compete lack of sportsmanship.

    Agree with all your picks but would added Annunen as standout goalie.

    Cam York was a huge disappointment

    Annunen on the other hand, what a surprise !

    Living in Quebec and having to hear how Caufield is the second comming of Mike Bossy everyday I'd say his 0 goal as a 19 year old is prettt dissappointing ;)

    Heinola and Addison have both looked very good on their respective teams.

    I can see why those picks would be made. I just see talent oozing out of Byram however.

    Struggled every game, lots of work to do if he's to become an NHL sniper.

    Yeah, you might be right. I thought he was pretty good but just like all other goalies, had some rough stretch.

    I totally agree. Same with Byfield. Last year Lafrenière was practically invisible on the ice. Both Byram and Byfield are eligible to play next year so I expect them to be dominant in 2021

    Kristian Tanus, Finland. 8 points now and he was the one who made that beautiful no look pass to Oden.

    I'm guilty of not watching much of the tourney but have been watching highlights and reading online. Seems to me the Canucks have a gem in Hoglander from what I'm hearing but other then the highlights I don't know much. How has he been without the puck? With it I realize he's great.

    Unfortunately i think many highlights wont capture some of the little things he does with the puck and in puck battles.

    Hes been great on the boards and in front of the net.

    Last game he could have easily had 2 nice assists and a goal.

    He creates, creates, creates.

    A play making winger who can finish would be a dream for the Canucks if he pans out. Thanks for sharing and hopefully he keeps developing !

    Calling him a 19 year old seems so wrong to me especially considering his birthday just happened today

    Biggest surprise: Raty - I thought he would struggle more. Probably gonna end up better than Lafreniere

    Disappointment - Beecher - He just could seem to produce any ounce of offense when I was paying attention to him.

    He did suck though. Like the rest of the teams. Perhaps time to retire the skates, move to Vegas and become a low class prostitute?

    They could give group discounts and use the profit to study hockey.

    If that's the case, then 2021 seems like a weak draft. I haven't been that impressed, but I guess it's a bit early.

    Puistola and Maccelli have impressed me the most out of the Finnish skaters.

    Victor Söderström for Sweden I think. ARI has an OEL replacement in the making there.

    Well he is the only 2021 eligible prospect in this wjc. And draft - 2 players arent generally that good in this tournament anyway. Lafreniere had 1 point in 5 games, Barkov and McDavid both had 4 points in 7 games.

    This isnt really a tournament for young players.

    Aatu Räty has been a good draft -2 player. So far one of the best finns in this tournament. He is a very complete player for his age, does everything well. But he also has that high offensive ceiling.

    Holland looking stupid af for taking Broberg over Zegras, Podkolzin, Soderstrom and Lavoie over Höglander and Fagemo. Pray to god each turn out but haven't been impressed with either so far.

    Aatu is a double minor and gets very little ice time with no PP at all. He's still been very good though.
