Carey Price anyone?
That's funny because Price never played in the U20 as an undrafted player and was downright bad in his u18 appearance in 2005. The World Juniors is a great opportunity to watch the best young prospects compete at a high level for their country, but in no way is the focus on developing players for the sake of their NHL career.
