I don't think it proves anything. While I'm sure teams were generally aware of Kreider's play in college and WJC, they didn't have a whole lot of details--especially on how Tortorella would play him. Now, they have lots more information and will be better able to figure out how to play against him. If anything it's going to be harder.
