Tourneys like this are not as much about winning as it is about seeing the prospects and developing them. Otherwise there wouldn't be a 3rd place/5th place/7th place game. Sure, it's nice to win...but they're exhibition matches, at the end of day nobody really cares who won or lost. To borrow a heavily used misquote...the Sabres are 0-0 against teams that matter.
True. They get to evaluate where players are against similar competition and at the same time further bond players to one another.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. - Aristotle
