    In a best-on-best tournament happening right now where you pick the players for your team, how would it look?

    Finland for me:

    Laine-Hintz-Rantanen
    Teräväinen-Aho-Kakko
    Haula-Barkov-Kapanen
    Granlund-Koivu-Donskoi


    Lindell-Heiskanen
    Heinola-Ristolainen
    Nutivaara-Niku


    Rinne
    Rask

    Taking into account who shoots left/right:

    Hall - McDavid - MacKinnon (speed/skill line)
    Marchand - Crosby - Marner
    Giroux - Tavares - Stamkos (Point would also work here).
    O'Reilly - Bergeron - Stone (shut down line, although Marchand - Crosby - Bergeron would also be great)
    Extras: Scheifele/Seguin/Point

    Giordano - Burns
    Rielly - Doughty
    Pietrangelo - Weber
    Chabot

    Price
    Fleury
    Binnington

    I'm beginning to think America could easily be favourites for the next Olympics - or on par with Canada. So much young talent that will put them in a great position in 2 years.

    I'm beginning to think you set that up on purpose to make this point, because they're really not.

    "Cement-Skates" Scheifele wouldn't keep up with McDavid and MacKinnon.

    This is such a weird thing, I don't know why so many people think this way. You don't need a bunch of players with the same skill-sets. That's why I think Hall-McDavid-MacKinnon would just be redundant.

    It was by accident, DeBrincat played in the OHL which threw me off.

    And I really do think America's team is good enough to win gold, although I think any of Canada/USA/Sweden/Finland have great chances. Their roster will be at a good age for this era (before vets like Kessel are done but with their new upcoming core entering their primes) and features many complete, two-way players.

    Throw a guy like Tavares on a line with mcdavid + MacKinnon. Or another big goal guy.

    How would team USA look? I´ll actually say that the skill in the current top 5 teams is in all at an all-time high.

    I was thinking Olympics as I consider that the most meaningful tournament. They haven't really done anything in the Olympics over the last 15 years or so (not including 2018 which is a joke). The politics of team Russia does makes their roster worse though.
