There's not many WJC eligible guys that will be playing in the AHL. By my count only the Swedes and RNH. The reason Canadians are salivating is because Huberdeau, Strome, Hamilton et. al could be stuck in the CHL and thus available. There's no rules or guarantees for AHL players to go, although it would be likely if the lockout is still going on by then.

However if the timing is poor the NHL camps could start up mid December and interfere with the WJC. I doubt they'd release players trying to make the big club.
