I'm of the opinion that those who "aren't clutch" have probably been weeded out of the ranks well before the NHL level. When you think of how many opportunities in a players development there are for them to get booted out of the NHL pipeline, it seems impossible to me that such a trait wouldn't have been targeted by scouts/coaches as glaring are of deffeciency and cause fro concern.
I agree.
