    Yes, I clearly was. I saw the Canada East/Russia game, and USA/Canada West game, and the latter was played at a much higher tempo. Pair that with the fact that Canada West beat Russia 6-1 in an exhibition game, and I was convinced we'd get a repeat of USA/Canada West in the final. The Russians seem to turn it on when they need to. They always seem tough to read in tournaments.

    I found a different stream.

    Rubtsov looks amazing. 0-0 after 2 periods.

    Yakovenko's draft stock has just plummeted.

    A lot of very good players on this young russian squad. Pretty odd that there are some 1999's competing with guys turning 20 though lol

    Canada West played really well. Seems like HC is really changing the playing style of their teams. Speed, aggressiveness, skill is what HC looks for in building a team now. This team wasn't the biggest but they were the fastest and most skilled in the tournament and played a up tempo, energy game.

    These type of teams HC selects have Mike Babcock written all over it and I think after the Olympics, HC changed how their mind-set in picking teams.

    I really thought Russia had the most skill. They were on average a year younger than Canada West. But your point stands. I loved West's style of game.

    Solid showing by Russia. A bit unlucky in places. Played well defensively which is most important.

    http://www.thedraftanalyst.com/recaps/wjac-2015/

    If I had to identify some big-time winners from this tournament in terms of draft exposure, I'd say (in no specific order):

    Jost
    Rubtsov
    Zimmer
    Jozefek
    Reichel
    Karafiat
    Kayumov
    Alexeev
    Mescheryakov
    Maltsev
    Makar
    Grant

    Guys like Knierim needed a good one, and I guess he kinda did. Fabbro didn't hurt or improve his draft stock. I think Doudera, Ivanyuzhenkov, Stadler, Miranda, Iakovenko (among others) didnt help theirs.
