Gaudreau had a great tourny, but small sample sizes dont sway my opinion
I'm still a little surprised when people say Johnny has played well in a small sample size here's what he earned his first year in the NCAA

Bill Flynn Trophy Hockey East Most Valuable Player 201112
NCAA Boston College Eagles Hockey East all-tournament team 201112
NCAA Boston College Eagles "Beanpot MVP" 2012 201112

Currently he's one of the favorites for the Hobey Baker this year second in pts per game to a guy 3 years older than him.

and then he was named to the WJC all-star team or whatever that is with a tournament leading 7 goals including a huge game against Canada...

To me it seems like the small sample size argument comes more from people only looking at his last 4 games than from Johnny only preforming in 4 games.

That said TT has shown skills that impressed a lot of people and scouts took him top 20 in his draft year thinking he would translate them to the next level.
In Johnny's case the questions will always be there no matter what he does (and what more can anyone expect from him?)
