I wonder what the souts in the stands thought of their play in the WCHA Championship Tournament last week-end? Yes Kessel got 3 assists (2 on PP and 1 with the extra attacker at game end) assisting finisher extraordinaire Ryan Potulny score 3 of his 4 goals in the Friday night semi-final 8-7 Minnesota loss to Minnesota--THEN he and his team do the el-foldo in a 4-0 loss to wisconsin in the 3rd place match game (vaunted Minnesota finishes 4th in the WCHA as a result)...have we not seen PHIL THE THRILL "wilt" and "quit" in big games before when things haven't gone right for him and his team? It hasn't happened that often in his careeer--but enough times to question whether he has the "character" to rise abve adversity--once things get a little tough or the checking on him tighter--he sometimes just flat out quits...also most of his points are off the PP and extra man situations--how valuable is he even-strength--scouts must be asking these tough questions about him... Meanwhile Toews only had 1 assist in North Dakota's Friday night semi-final 4-3 win over Wisconsin;but then he comes up real big in the CHAMPIONSHIP GAME with 1g+2a in the 5-3 North Dakota win over St. Cloud State for all the marbles...don't think scouts won't be marking this down! They will have noticed and character marks (if they weren't already) will be going in facvour of Toews..
