First, I'm not super-privy to the ins and outs of the whole thing-this was just a guess on my part and my part alone. And second, I know Dougie Hamilton is also on the team and has quite a bit of offensive skill(he's more of a two-way player than an offensive D; fact is, Dougie STILL racks up points). IMO, they're not expecting Pysyk to carry the D scoring load for Canada.

(Add on: TSN's Ray Ferraro noted that Nathan Beaulieu is expected to provide most of the scoring push from the blueline. So Hamilton might be asked to work more on the D side. Same with Pysyk.)
