Let's put things into perspective. Brian, your kid had 18 goals and 55 points the last time he played hockey. That's not a superstar. That's not a star either. No one in their right mind would even flirt with the idea of him on the Canadian Olympic team. Matt Duchene on the other hand is at least a player that can be named as a contender for the Olympic team without it sounding absurd (even though he isn't making the team either).

Ryan has proven nothing in the NHL. He has one playoff point to his name - in 6 games. Excuse me while I sound unimpressed. Glad you raised such a humble kid though. All this time I was wondering where the heck the attitude of a player like O'Reilly would have come from because of this holdout. You answered my question, dad.
