It's the same situation as Hamilton, just the opposite end of the spectrum. Either they're busts at the age of 19, or they're stars ready to leap into an NHL lineup.
In reality, the WJC is the ultimate SSS. Just look at the list of guys who never played in a WJC (you can start with Seguin), and the guys who starred in WJCs and never made it in the NHL.
Guys like Hamilton and Koko are scouted up the wazoo. Teams don't go by how they play over a two-week stretch, but a two-
stretch, which is going to include plenty of the ups and downs that are normal for any hockey players, but especially for teen-agers.
