Again, you are making an error where you judge something as a 0 or 100% game. You just said that a coach's decision is not at all predictive of the player's future in the NHL. That is patently false on its face. So you are telling me that if a player can't make the team, the reason is always something unrelated to the player's talent?

The reality is that 9 times out of 10, where a player plays is determined by his talent + experience + physical development. There are exceptions, of course, but to suggest that these exceptions are the rule is just false.

Just as it is great to see Lindberg on the SEL first line, it is less than exciting to see Foggy on the fourth line of a lesser league.
