Kootenay lost what little firepower they had once Eakin graduated, they leaned on Max for absolutely everything and he delivered incredibly.
The only supporting cast he really had to speak of was his brother Sam.
Completely disagree. I get to see a lot of him. He played with Ismond and Czerwenka for most of the games I watched, he didn't even play with Sam except on the PP, so you're right on the linemates thing even though they were the best wingers on the team. But he didn't noticeably improve in any areas from the end of last year in my view. I noticed a big improvement in Ferland's skating and hockey sense, but nothing for Max.
I'm not saying Max was awful, but he didn't progress from the end of last year to the end of this one. If you remember last year he was pretty much doing everything for them at that time and was pretty dominant through the playoffs. He was actually noticeably less effective this year than he was in the playoff run last year.
