    Yes and the Netminder for Finland was solid...he stoned them time and again, except for one cross bar shot he was in control.

    Never viewed this as a great US team. Oliver Wahlstrom continues to underwhelm. Not enough juice upfront.

    They certainly needed more from Wahlstrom and Caufield.

    Wahlstrom is an up and down wing man, good shot but not very creative and low motor. He needs a very creative center to make time and space for him. I don't see him having much of a pro career.

    Agree, as witness the Beanpots and Lamoriellos that never came to Chestnut Hill while he was there. Also expected more of Caufield and Miller.

    No puck luck and just not enough US firepower up front to overcome the Finns clogging the middle and blocking the shooting lanes. Also a bad quarterfinal draw. USA would have been playing the Swiss had said Swiss not improbably upset the aforementioned Finns in the last prelim game.

    The sun will still come up tomorrow.

    I mean... he was only here for a year.

    The Barry Trotz quote when he was sent down to Bridgeport was very telling. I think he was just so talented at his age level for such a long period of time, he just got by on talent and wasn't absorbing the coaching and learning how to play the game. I'm still not sure how coachable he is at this point. Another one that probably should have stayed in school.

    Would you have wanted him for another year? Granted I only saw him play a few games, but yikes... The games I saw hey played like he had no more ****s to give.

    Bah, Cz and Sk both dead.

    A wasted year, going 2-8 between them.

    Here's to the Finns. Just win the whole thing.

    I mean... I feel like we have a good answer of what it's like without him. So in hindsight no. Even if he is considered an elite player.

    Agreed. On the Development team, he had some pretty impressive numbers against D1 schools (2 point games against Notre Dame, Harvard, Michigan, and Kato, goals against NoDak and Ferris), and so he may have thought, even before starting college, that he'd already proven himself against that level of competition. It has to be hard to get buy in from someone like that. "Block a shot? Are you kidding me, coach? These are million dollar feet we're talking about!"

    Be happy with the Finns or Swedes winning it all.

    Too much pressure to young. He will come back. He has hands, just needs time for his brain to command what his hands and body want.

    They didn't have enough time away from Granato to develop.😉
