Exactly this. I was referring to Filatov's rookie year in Columbus.

If you want to project a player based on his first 10 games in the league, Filatov looked all-world. If you showed me nothing more than Filatov's first 10 games, and Weircioch's 8 NHL games, I'd take Filatov 100 times out of 100.

I'm clearly not saying Filly > Weir, I'm just saying you can't use 8 games and come to any conclusion of any kind.

You start making decisions like that on small sample sizes, and what you end up with is a guy like Fernando Pisani on a 4 year $10 mil contract.
