Nice. I would be very pleased if Heiskanen made the team out of camp this year.

Our little miracle.

Nonsense. We must make room for Oleksiak's greatness.

I saw a bit of this Summer Showcase on Sunday. Oettinger didn't play in the game I watched, but he was still into the game, standing on the bench during the entire first period.

Tufte is a man. He's tall and big and tough. He took a penalty for a pretty rough cross check. He also elbowed a Finn in the head, but didn't get called. He was around the net a lot. He was on the PP and looked good there.

Robertson, I liked. He didn't get as much playing time. In the second period I was looking for him, thinking "did he even get a shift?" and then there he was, popping in a nice goal. You know how I just latch on to a player, he's my guy.

Karlstrom also looked good. He was tall and thin and slick and it looks like he's producing nicely at this tourney.

Not Stars prospect, Brady Tkachuk looked very nice. He's 2018 eligible and teams will be lining up. He made a couple mistakes too, but his upside was evident.

One other funny tid bit. The international teams have ads on their jerseys, right. Sweden, in the place where the players' name goes said Bauhaus. At first I was like, oh cool a player named Bauhaus before I realized all of their players were named Bauhaus. :)

At least one guy somewhere (forget where) thinks Robertson is the steal of the draft.

Just read that he didn't make the final Team US roster. US and Cananda had two rosters in the early games. I had wondered about that, but I guess they condense down to one. Oettinger and Tufte made the team.

Listen man, Rozz Williams stayed true to his weirdo goth roots until the bitter end. So much so that most of it was unlistenable spoken word and then he hanged himself on April fool's.

The man you should be shitting on is Valor, who stole the name and started making awful metal.
