I didn't know that. He has had success at almost every level: Memorial Cup, world juniors champion and tourney all-star, Stanley Cup champion, four-time all-star game participant; I say 'almost' every level because of his lack of adult international competition. I understand he wasn't in world championships because he played so many playoff games at the time, and he wasn't in the World Cup because of simple timing (haven't had one in eight years), but he wasn't on the Olympic team, which only means he wasn't deemed top-6 with truly superstar dmen to choose from. This is a minor point. If anything it just means that an Olympic gold medal would have bolstered his case for ATD worthiness.

I applaud your bio. An ATD 'newbie' has never done finer.
