As others have mentioned, if the NHL lockout is still going strong by WJC time, team Canada is going to be really tough to make. A handful of players have been mentioned already, but when you really look at the depth it's unreal. Hamilton, Murray, Murphy, Rielly, Reinhart, Dumba, Pouliot, Siemens, Percy, Ouellet, Sproul, Harrington, Ceci, Koekkoek, etc., it'll be very difficult for an undrafted dman to make the team. I can see some undrafted forwards making team Canada (like MacKinnon and Monahan, maybe even guys like Shinkaruk, Drouin or Lazar), but on d I think it'll be nothing but drafted players.
