As a Canadian...I agree. If he makes it as anything other then the 7th dman I will not be impressed.

The issue with Thomas is that his slow start hurt him (obviously he was coming on strong recently) and that he isn't a two way forward. I am not saying he is only offense, and in fact I like his defensive game, but he doesn't focus enough on defense for them to pick him.

I don't think I agree with the mentality Canada seems to be choosing. Remember they left of RNH last year because they wanted a responsible defensive two way team. Look how that worked out for us.
