The Czech-Russia game has been pretty entertaining so far....2-2 after the 1st.
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.

So far Lafreniere looks extremely dangerous. Detroit Phoenix is going to love him!

I'm glad to see the the continuing tradition of really underselling our OHL prospects.

I heard Robertson skates like Gartner and hits like Clark.

Results for Thursday Dec. 26:

Team Canada, or rather, it's #1 draft prospect Alexis Lafreniere, defeated Team USA 6-4 in a thrilling offensive matchup.  Lafreniere has three assists including the game-winner in helping Team Canada break out of a 4-4 tie game in the third period from which they never looked back. 

Way to go, Canada!
