It's not a stretch to assume that the ranker took into account Boychuck's supposed poor mental game/work habits. It's also safe to assume that perhaps the ranker is attempting to "see into" how the Canes now view Boychuck as opposed to when he was drafted. I don't think it is "comically absurd" to posit that the Canes view recently drafted players, ie. Rask, as more likely to actually play full-time for the Canes in the future. I view these rankings not as a "who is the better player" but as the likelihood of the player playing for the Canes for a long time.

Saying that, Boychuck very well could make the team this camp. He had a great AHL season, and it would only help the Canes if he came out and played like we've all expected him to for the last few seasons.
