I'm not saying that is should be it was more in reply to:

I have to disagree about good tams and bad teams though... 1 player can not change the fortune of a team. I suggest you go read the Sudbary Wolves thread in the OHL forum to see the state of the team.

Canucks prospect Frank Corrado on WJC selection camp invite: "I've always been on teams that haven't been the greatest
.... I've just tried to get better. Adversity helps you grow as a player and a person. I'm no stranger to it and have always got it done.

Offensively I'd have him ahead of Wotherspoon and Harrington(who is superior defensively) and only clearly ahead of a couple of superior offensive players in Murphy and Pouliot defensively.

There's seven other guys that I would say have a better combination of offense/defense than Corrado.

That's why I'd call him a fringe player.
Over these handful of times how many times did you watch Corrado & he was your main focus?

See I'm one of those people that will rely on advanced stats before I rely on someone's opinion with only a handful of games as sample size. I find they usually tend to have less bias then someone's opinion.

Can I assume the bold is a shot at myself? Thats how it comes off. I would hope its not with your position. I mean I don't really see anyone overhyping him... heck no one is really talking about him.
