Ok ok ok... so everyone remember that when Pierre McGuire proclaims each and every team Canada player as a future star/franchise player/elite athlete/MONSTER "for their NHL team", take a large boulder of salt and hold it up in front of his head on screen.

RNH-Huberdeau-Scheifele-Mackinnon down the middle? That's not bad.

True, although the last time there was a World Juniors when the NHL players were locked out a good half of the team did go on to be NHL all-stars.

Who was the last Leaf prospect that was expected to have as significant a role as Rielly is at the WJC?

Probably Pogge, no?

I also recall Kadri seeing some decent minutes with Taylor Hall a few years back, though probably not as prominent as Reilly's projected role.

Of course, hopefully Rielly turns out as good as he did!

He did win gold for Canada that year.

Kadri had a very big role in 09/10 but that year Taylor Hall got all the attention. I think Kadri was as good if not better than Hall was... buuut I could be a tad biased.

Always seems if this team wins silver, everyone forgets who did what.

RNH named captain.

Makes sense, I guess.

I thought it'd be a player coming back. Maybe Strome.

But I'm not sure if Kadri was expected to be one of the big performers on the team. Pogge/Rielly were thought to be big parts from the get go.
