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.
Do you think Hamilton would be mentioned for the Norris by Healy if ????

You are correct about junior though, until they make the NHL what they do in junior tournaments is just window dressing.

The fan960 before the tournament expected it to be the coming out party for Rielly. Too much hype for an underage tournament player.

The 197475 season saw another change to its playoff system to accommodate the league of 18 teams, twelve of which qualified for the playoffs. The top team from each division would earn a bye to the quarterfinal, while the second- and third-place teams from each division started their playoff run from a best-of-three preliminary round.
