As for the bolded, if the guy was burnt out then how would he be able to keep playing after the NHL season?

Just to clarify, I'm not dissappointed with the kid it's what I expected. But it's something we have to take with us going forward.
He was pinching but not nearly as much as he did in the AHL. He was actually pretty conservative earlier in the season and was very solid defensively.
He started to fall into bad habits during that long road trip and look flat out exhausted in the last 10 games or so.

Just because he's burnt out, doesn't mean that he can't play. Plus getting an invite to Team Canada is a great honor so i'm sure he had no problem mustering up the energy to play in this tournament.
