And ESPECIALLY a player who was not really in the cards. Just a fine job will not cut it 'cause there were guys who were in the cards already who are also just doing a fine job. So they'll be ahead of him.
The lads hanging on the USA thread seem to think he stands a good chance.
Yes he's not tearing the OHL apart but he's playing on a very poor Windsor team, and he's leading them in scoring while still shutting down opponents' top lines on most nights.
The one aspect that could go against him is the fact that he went the CHL route, but plenty of guys on this year's USA team will be from the CHL.
Also, if there's one word that describes Brady Vail, it's Versatility.
