Mackinnon: World Championships 2013

Not talking the World Junior Championship here. I'm talking about the Senior Men's World Championship in the spring. And since Hockey Canada had the stones or the stupidity (your choice) to include a yet to be drafted 18 year old defensemen Ryan Murray last year, will they have the stones to bring a 17 year old Mackinnon to Sweden in May? Mackinnon is by far a better prospect than Murray. (for the life of me, I still don't get the hype about Murray.) I think Hockey Canada should do it...since Olympic seeding has already been decided, this tournament means nothing in the grand scheme of things; and Hockey Canada doesn't seem to be interested in sending a serious team to it anyway...but since the Olympics are only a year away, some players will be inclined to accept invitations to play rather than reject them.

If the lockout wipes out the season (unlikely) but if it does, Hall Crosby Mackinnon would be my 2nd line. It would do some serious shredding of defenses over there.
