Kind of like the WJC? Look at those scores! 8-1, 9-4, 11-3! Sheesh!

Every one is thinking offense, no one is thinking defense.
But sure, it does make for very entertaining hockey. 8-)

Definitely impressed with the on ice vision, smarts, anticipation and skill set of Hopkins and Eberle but Taylor Hall may need to alter his game, cause he ain't gonna blow around or through guys in the NHL like he did in Junior against boys. He reminds me of Lindros in that he is gonna get rocked and injured on a regular basis cause he tends to put his head down and skate with reckless abandon and no game plan with the puck.

I was just thinking Hall looked rather insignificant last night. Eberle is well developed player for the Oilers so far and still going to get better, barring injury. RNH is by all definition, a blue chipper. Wow at the skill set this kid has.
