I think you are missing the point here ..

The players that play for Canada ...really has nothing to due with NHL success...They are currently amatuers ...and this Tourney is also referred to a Under 20 , where 19 year olds prosper the most ...

So my point was that Williams is leading the WHL in scoring proving that he can play at or better the level of the others in the then in a Tourney against other 19 year olds and younger why would ne not be successful??...

What does that say ..Williams is better offensively than North American players but not against other countries even though Canada is considered one of the strongest teams and Countries for developing players..
