It's a small tournament. What they do throughout the regular season is also much more important surely?

Plus, the World Juniors also has a disparity in talent. Draft eligible players on the Czechs, Slovaks etc simply aren't going to be able to perform to a level you might expect against much tougher stronger opposition in relation to their own team. It isn't like a CHL vs CHL game, where talent can be relatively close. Faksa had an ok event, but is considered a 1st round pick and what he did here will have little bearing on where he gets drafted.

The event is also not for 17 yr olds. What they do here doesn't really matter that much for future projections.
