I know he played in 2 tournaments, but if you read what I posted, I said he didn't play in the WJC until AFTER he was drafted by the Canucks. He was drafted by the Canucks in 2004 and played 1 game in the 2004-2005 WJC and then 6 games in the 2005-2006 WJC.

The point being, that the Canucks took a flyer on him in the 1st round before any accomplishments had been made by Schneider in the WJC. This compares to Subban who hasn't accomplished anything in the WJC at this point, but may do so as early as this year, by being the goalie Canada selects as their starter.
