To me, it looks like he dropped the ball there.

When I'm picking a player for my team, I don't just look for the usual things you can see in a game of shinny. I want a guy who will step up when it's time to compete for hardware, a guy who thrives in high-pressure situations.

This was just one game, yes. Just one period, even. But it's probably the most important period he will have played before the draft. It means something.
Would you say that every player you have ranked ahead of Trouba has stepped up in high-pressure situations? I'm genuinely curious, not being snide.
