One of those articles is unlike the other, in my opinion, and that's my only point.
Why is it a negative to say Kozun is finally grown up? The message comes from the coach himself, it's ok to say it and to do so in a positive manner.

Do we really think that Vey, Toffoli, and Pearson are not confident, and in some cases even cocky? I very much doubt that. So I guess my final point is, Hockey Canada does not take arrogant, overconfident, destructive players onto their World Junior Teams (Ask Kyle Beach). Obviously there can be exceptions, especially if you are a hyped up potential top overall pick, but generally, if you are not one of those players, they look for "high character" guys. This article is implying I guess that Kozun was not one of those players early on.. Which I very much doubt.
