Good post.
I judge prospects by how they fare against top competition at/or close to their age group. That's why the WJC is a good barometer of prospects development and POTENTIAL at the next level. Usually players that perform well in the WJC, USUALLY graduate to the next level and ultimately play and produce at some level in the NHL. However, for every Kreider and Stepan there is a Dube and Dawes, and so on.
I guess what I'm trying to say, is that if you're of a small stature, you better be able to play big and get to the dirty areas to make things happen. I was pretty high on MSC with a lot of things being said about him from posters who had seen him play regularly.
Well, I saw MSC play in the recent Memorial Cup (3 games), and I was totally not impresse by him at all. Never mind NOT even being close to being the top offensive player on his team, he looked lazy and disinterested in all three zones. I hope he was injured or had some other good reason for his performance that week, but this kid was very average and with his size, I seriously doubt he ever makes it to the NHL. Hope I'm wrong.
