Its up to him to produce and bring home the Gold. The rest of the team will look to him to carry the weight and put the team on his shoulders. His celebrity dwarfs theirs in comparison.

That's awesome! Has there ever been a case of a players of RNH's NHL status come and play the WJC? I doubt it, but I wouldn't have a clue.

No single player wins a tournament on their own. Peter Forsberg recorded over 30 points in one tournament and couldn't bring home the gold. If Canada expects to win, it will take more than RNH to get it done.

Thanks to the blow out against Japan, the Forsberg line's numbers were overblown. But certainly you are right, one player, unless its a goalie, is not going to be the difference.

So take them out. The leaves him with a mere 21 in 6 games, which equates to 3.5 points per game. Any other theories?

Stop being a weiner, his point stands.

Alternatively, somebody can score very few points and be a major difference maker on a team.

Sources tell me not only will RNH attend camp, but he will also be a camp counselor.

No question he put up amazing numbers. The tournament was a simple round robin back then. Instead of playing one or possibly two bad teams in your side of the pool, you played them all. There was no QF, SF or gold medal game, where scoring gets tighter. Given the structure if the tournament now, I doubt anyone will ever touch that record. They really ought to have two sets of records. Pre medal round and now. It's just a very different tournament now.

I am not sure what your point is or what my theory was supposed to be. You should relax a little. But thanks for the incredible math lesson.

On another note, just saw an interview with RNH today and the guy is starting to look jacked. I know that he has put on weight in the offseason but he is starting to look less like a boy and more like an NHL player now.

Based on?

Not sure a month in any situation would affect his development much one way or another.

Yeah, cause an NHLER missing 3-4 weeks out of the AHL season to lead his national team and do something he'll never get another chance to do is a huge blow to his development.

Yeah, the Oilers organization are going to ruin him, just terrible

At the very least, this is a great leadership opportunity for him.

Word is that even answering the phone call set him back a year.

The level of play isn't as high as the AHL, but there's other benefits. RNH will be a leader on this team, whereas in Edmonton and even Oklahoma he's a little bit in the shadow of other young stars. Hopefully he grabs the bull by the horns and can learn a thing or two about leading a team.
