In our humble opinion here at Okposo Net, Kyle can't get back to Minnesota quickly enough. We came into the World Juniors thinking that Kyle would be a major force on a good (but not great) U.S. team. Well, Kyle has not been a force and the U.S. team has disappointed. They'll play Sweden today for a bronze medal...and even that may be out of reach.
Kyle, meanwhile, as far as we can tell, had been relegated to the 4th line, and in 8 games has 1 (one) assist. No goals. One assist.
The idea of him playing superior competition is nice and helps his development, but the tournament just disappointed from beginning to end on all levels.
