It's such a convenient thing to say oh he finished 12th on the team in scoring, and ended up on the 4th line.

Who cares? He scored 5 points in 7 games, and won a gold medal. You could also say Sidney Crosby was the 6th leading scorer in that tournament. Does that mean Pavol Demitra who was #1 is better than him?

Michal Handzus had more points than Patrick Kane. Whats the significance there?

In a short tournament, where you have ZERO time to practice and gain chemistry, it's all a crap shoot.
Nash played great in that tournament. His point total doesn't reflect that.
