The debate is whether there is too much stock put in a small sample space. I think NN fits that category but you're right there are different scenarios where a player does genuinely improve. That's not what he brought up though. He mentioned jumping 20 spots in 1st round because of a short tournament.
It's also about potential not production.

Otherwise scouts wouldn't go to games and just draft from stats in hockeydb.com.
