I don't know if anyone else is watching the World Junior Championship, but I have been really impressed with Despres in the series. I was really impressed with him in training camp, but the World Juniors is really showcasing him in a different way. He's playing more of a shut down role as opposed to the high scoring, flashy offensive role he showed in camp, and plays on his junior team. The speed at the Juniors is off the charts (unlike camp) and I've been pleasantly surprised with his skating, especially when you consider his size. Any thoughts?
