Tons of examples of very solid NHLers who never sniffed the WJC.
Just like some kids that played great in the WJC, never did much in the NHL.
And players that had bad WJC, have solid NHL careers. There's always gonna be a group of blue chip prospects that excel in the WJC and then excel in the NHL.
