There should be no surprise an 18 yr old Rattie didn't make it. Canada had a LOT of good players to pick from and the 19 yr olds almost always get the edge over the 18 yr olds. Rattie would've made any other WJC team but Canada's team is by far the hardest to make and he had very little chance to make it once NHLers Connolly and Smith-Pelly were added. He'll very likely make it next year though.

Wannstrom's too old now. The Blues will have 3 prospects in the WJC - Schwartz for Canada (likely captain or asst captain), Jaskin for the Czechs and Hakanpaa for the Finns. Games start Dec. 26.
