Jordan Eberle in WJC.

Evgeni Malkin in the 2009 playoffs.

Paul Henderson in 72

Mario and Wayne in 87

When someone plays for their country they never get paid. Especially when it's a junior aged tournament.
Prove to me that any of those weren't from the fact that:
*those are super talented players who score all the time even in non "clutch" moments
*that any of those players were able to raise their game to a "higher level" than they normally do

What separates those moments is that their importance in results, but it doesn't identify that the players rose their compete in those circumstances.

Also, Malkin has not risen his playing level in any measurement for post-season relative to reg-season.
And, I've heard straight from the horses mouth in regards to Paul Henderson
