It's a high pressure tournament, and I have no doubt that he'll perform to expectations and put up huge numbers.

If the team doesn't win, it's not going to be RNH's fault.

Frankly, I am skeptical that it's going to be much more high pressure than being the #1 draft pick and playing as an 18 year old in the NHL.
International tournaments and playoff runs are huge development opportunities. There is way more pressure in winning this tournament than playing a handful of AHL games in the middle of a long season. Many NHLers will tell you how much this tournament meant to them to play in it and how much it helped them become the players they have. And obviously it matters to Ryan since he choose to play.
