Exactly. If I were making the team, I would not shy away from taking 17 year olds if I find them to be better options, but Hockey Canada operates with an agenda, as shown when they did not bother to invite Calvin Pickard last year. I forsee Duncan Siemens suffering a similar fate if he does not average about a point-per-game this year.

Also, they BETTER include MacKinnon on the team this time. He's Canada's most dynamic player, period.
