The award though, doesn't guarantee a stellar NHL career, as I noticed there aren't alot of recipients that have gone onto even a marginally notable career. Arnason was a past recipient, and he is doing fine, but for the most part there have been only a few stars who won the award. I hope Bourque is one of the exceptions.
i think any reasonable person knows this doesn't gaurantee anything. just nice to have a another good, promising prospect.
