Dougie

    Dougie

    He's been dominant in the first game for Canada. Just a few things that I've noticed.
    1. At first he looked a little lost when playing defense.
    2. One thing I noticed is when someone was coming across the blueline he would just swat at the puck, and forget to play the body. (He's done better the the 2nd and 3rd period)
    3. Ridiculously offensive-minded. At one point he rushed the puck, and he just played offense for the rest of the shift. 
    4. Nasty. He layed someone out along the endboards during the first period. (Canada's entire team has been nasty). 
    5. In the first period rather than looking for a pass he would just try and do everything himself. In the 2nd and the 3rd he's made some beautiful passes.
    6. He's going to be a STAR in the NHL.

    On a different note does anybody know if #20 for Canada, Jenner is drafted? So dominant physically.

    I watched a video stream of this game. British/Australian commentators for hockey games do not work.

    As for Dougie Hamilton (1 goal and 1 assist this afternoon), to me he still looks likes he needs to add muscle to play in the NHL. He still looks like a boy. Looking at the Canadian roster, I noticed he's only about 3 months older than their youngest player (Ryan Murray).

    Totally agree. He did not play very aggressively early on in the first period, when battling for the puck behind his own net. He looked a tad scared, that play when he hurried and iced the puck is a prime example. He had time, but he rushed it.

    Played better later on in the game. I agree on him needing to add some weight. If he can put on 10 or so pounds of muscle between now and training camp next year, that would certainly benefit both himself, and the Bruins. Also, don't get me wrong, I love that he pinches and attacks the net, but at times you'd think he was a forward (if that makes any sense), and he can be vulnerable if he's not back near the blueline, if there is a bad bounce of the puck or something.

    I'm really looking forward to seeing what he will do in Canada's next game.

    Jenner was drafted 37th this year by the CBJ... which probably counts as the kiss of death on a decent NHL career if they are interested in keeping him.

    On a side note.  How SICK would that Canadian team be if they had Seguin, Skinner, Hall and Nugent-Hopkins?

    His passing skills are great, and he has an awesome poke-check, like Chara. I wouldn't say he dominated, but he was very good and I think his talent will make him an outstanding player in the NHL.

    Very well summed up! 
    What stood out the most was his first pass.
    Also noticed for a big guy if he needs to take off with or without the puck he does it effortless.
    As for needed to pick it up from the 1st ?  what are you guys talking about ?

    Re: Dougie

    I saw the 2nd/3rd periods of the game and thought DH looked pretty good.  Small sample, but his ability to transition, skate the puck and outlet pass jumped out to me.  He was aggressive on the pinch, but did get caught one time in no man's land that lead to an odd man rush.  He looked ok in his own end, a mix of solid plays and not so solid plays, but was pretty physical.

    Among Team Canada d-men, I didn't think he stood out, kind of middle of the pack of the gang of 7.  That is not a bad thing, considering the group they have.  Interesting that he was not on the #1 PP, as the blue-line was manned by Gormley and Beaulieu. 

    I was encouraged by what I saw from a skill-level standpoint, look forward to seeing more of him.

    The tourny will get tougher every gm.; so far Dougie is looking more confident. another postive note our Russian prospect scored a nice goal.

    Gormley had a good game IMO .
    Beaulieu not sure of his ice-time but didn't hear his name much in the first half of the game.  Maybe being used more as a specialist on the PP ?

    From these comments it appears that Dug is adjusting to the level of play as the game progresses. Indicates hockey smarts. For those questioning weight, he's in his prime growth years, and should progress quite well.
