Hopefully for his sake he learns how to be a team player

 

 Agreed he tried to be a one man show and that never works but he has shown flashes of brilliance.

 

wow Ikonen has rocket skates

Larkin was by far the best player for the States. Eichel didn't impress me at all, he tried to do way too much on his own. Seemed to forget that he had 4 other American players on the ice with him...

They were pretty legit penalties. USA is chasing.

Hoping Larkin can step it up in the 2nd and 3rd and come back.

Domi isn't taunting the opposition with his tongue out of his mouth. He celebrates every goal that way whether its in the WJR's, the OHL or in Minor hockey.

 

Just like I enjoyed watching Petr Mrazek celebrate stopping penalty shots by going nuts and jumping into the glass I also enjoy seeing forwards find new ways to celebrate goals, at least at this level of hockey.

 

Let these kids have fun, most of them will have all that youthful exuberance stripped away from them when they reach the NHL.

 

That Captain Morgan pose was hilarious.

Anyone that questions Weiss' importance to this team, check our record with him vs without him. *drops mic*

That's a good point, veterans for sure will tell them to turn it down. Also something I've noticed us that McDavid is really uncomfortable with all the hype and attention, kid isn't even 18, just got back from an injury and the cameras are in his face all the time. Let him enjoy the tournament instead.

About the game - I was only able to catch the third period. Canada looked like classic Wings puck-possession hockey, US looked like...modern-day Wings hockey. Canada was incredibly dominant. They flat-out owned the puck. It belonged to them.

 

Larkin tho. Holy s***. This is his team; Eichel has not wowed me.

I was at a bar and every Canadian said that goal wasn't a goal and shouldn't count, but it did. I highly doubt you will find another Canadian that disagrees with you. However saying US didn't play their best, well Canada didn't either then I guess?

 

 

No you are not alone. I was wondering the same thing and most Canadians were happy that he wasn't on the ice. Eichel looked to be extremely selfish out there and seemed like he was just trying to be a hero instead of worrying about tying the game.

 

What I mean by US not playing there best is they looked very nervous, hence why the D made brutal turnovers that lead to the empty nets.

 

I think it's time to say Larkin is better then Eichel right now and I wonder if Eichel is realizing that? I don't know why you would take Larkin off the ice, doesn't make sense.

What's funny is people in Canada even agree that was a bad call. U.S didn't play there best besides Larkin of course. We will get you next game even though, hopefully there isn't gong show of calls everywhere.

So…

 

Canada is up 3-1 late in regulation.

 

Larkin scores to bring his team within one.

 

Canada scores an empty net goal off a couple DeAngelo screw-ups. Dagger in the heart. Horrribly deflating. Game is over.

 

Larkin scores again to bring his team within one again.

 

Canada scores another empty net goal off another terrible turnover made by another US defenseman. Horribly deflating. Game is over.

 

Larkin, if I’m not mistaken, didn’t see the ice after his second goal. Granted, there were only 45 seconds left, but, I mean, c’mon. He’s singlehandedly given your team a fighting chance, twice, in the span of a few minutes. He was pumped as hell. Give him the chance to net a legendary hat trick.

 

Am I alone in feeling this way?

What I mean, is you no longer have the "goal that shouldn't have counted" being the game winner as an excuse. 
Game 2-2, that BS goal for Canada makes it 3-2. If that goal never counted. U.S would be up 3-2 and your 2 empty net goals never happen either because we wouldn't of pulled our goalie.
But good try buddy, you won because the game is in Canada LOL
