While Canada will always roll out more than one "scoring line", I believe Crosby is pretty much guaranteed to play a much more prominent roll on the team this year and expect him to be a key part of one of the top lines.

Last year, he'd only played a couple of months of junior hockey and it wasn't clear whether he really was as dominant as he appeared to be. He was also one of the youngest players to ever play on the team, and Canada's coaches always lean towards junior hockey veterans. With a CHL Player of the Year under his belt, it's pretty clear Crosby is the real deal and will know what to expect of the WJC this year.
