I could have said the same things about Patrick Kane, Johnny Toews, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Kris Versteeg, Dave Bolland before they ever had a chance to showcase themselves in the playoffs for their first times, but I didn't and took a chance, guessing they would step it up.

Of course, I was proved right.
