Why? It's not common for a 17 year old to make the USA WJC team. Etem didn't belong nor did they need him. And given his performances (as an older and better player) in 2011 and 2012, I doubt he would have helped either. You're just grasping at straws considering you didn't even know Etem played in 2011 and 2012. So you're willing to go back to 2010, when he was 17 and the USA won gold, to continue grasping at this point...

Their bias with the NTDP players has cost them games and medals.... Just like our bias with 19 year old'a has cost us 3 straight golds.
Some rule. Conveniently changed since your latest contradiction. Thankfully they didn't apply it to Campbell, Gibson, Fowler, Miller, Morin, Bourque, McRae, etc. Did they lose the rule book for a few years?
