What does that have to do with pressure? There is and was zero pressure on Beauvillier. Everyone knows he won't make it unless he pots a hat trick in each tryout game. There is not much pressure on these bubble guys that have no real shot of making the team unless they have a game or two of their lives which is why it's even foolish to invite them.

If anything the pressure is there on guys like Dumba, who is buckling under it.
