Where's Patrick O' Sullivan now? Oh yeah, he got cut from his Finnish elite league team earlier in the year. This tourney has no bearing on where a player is at the NHL level. It's also a completely different game compared to the NHL i.e. the big ice.

This tournament is fun but it's hardly a benchmark or a platform for players. The World Juniors are where 18 year olds go to make a name for themselves heading into their draft year. In some cases it can be misleading as well. Ryan O'Marra had a hell of a World Juniors for Canada.
