I think it's pretty indicative of who's actually seen him play before the U-18, and who actually knows their ass from a hole in the ground if they had seen him at the WJC. Forsberg played just fine at the WJC. I came away impressed.

But they see him in the U-18's, and he has an admittedly poor game today(it just was), and they conclude that the guy is a bad player(not just a great player having a bad game).
