I think Habs non hocky ops pressured Timmins on this one.

I will gladly eat crow too if I'm wrong, , but I've a really bad feeling about this guy.
So LL's a bust because he didn't make Team Canada as an 18 year old? That's ridiculous! A lot of players who have been cut from that team (or never even received an invitation to camp) have gone on to have great careers and a lot of players who have starred for Team Canada have been busts in the NHL. Team Canada picks players for the WJC team based on how good they are now, not how good they will be in five years when they are establishing themselves at the pro level.
