Nazem Kadri played well in the WJC's, why was he labelled a bust after his good performances by most in the media?

Morgan Rielly is an elite prospect.
Hamilton's performance has nothing to do Rielly's performance. He played ok hockey at WJC's, just like the rest of the the defenseman. Pretty underwhelming overall. I don't think Rielly was used correctly, but he also didn't prove himself enough to be a top pairing player in the tournament.
