Again, I'll reiterate the point, the only thing that matters is what you do at the NHL level. Everything else means nothing.

Sidney Crosby is Sidney Crosby, because he won a Gold, Stanley Cup, Art Ross, and Hart. Sidney Crosby is not Sidney Crosby because of what he did in Junior, but because of what he did at the NHL level.

Also, according to your skewed logic, I suppose someone with a PhD who amounts to nothing later on in life is much more successful than a university dropout such as Steve Jobs.

Hype, literally means nothing. I want people who get the job done, when it counts. I don't care about their hype. And successful GMs or bosses will hire people who get the job done. GMs or bosses that fall for the hype end up failing their teams or companies, and ultimately lose their job.
Permit me to chime in.

Of course, nothing is absolute when dealing with people. BUT, you have a *better chance* that you'll end up with someone who knows what he's doing when picking a PhD than picking some drop-out dude. Nobody really knows for sure who can really get the job done. GMs and bosses play the percentages by picking the person with the best credentials, given the data they have on the candidates.
