I don't care how good it sounds, I care how much sense it makes, and to me, it makes a great deal of sense, way more than the popular narrative that the system is killing all the talent even though some of the same exact players had career years in the same exact system last year.

Watch Richards and tell me that he looks like a player who was conditioned properly. Watch Gaborik and tell me the same. Compare them to guys who played in Europe, Nash, MDZ, Stepan. Who's skating well? Who is playing up to the standards they're expected to? That's no coincidence.
