Omitting him on those grounds is no different then saying "Oh hey, so we've decided that you're guilty".

Remember one Steve Downie? Don't seem to recall Hockey Canada having that approach with him when he had all his league troubles.
Big difference between Downie and Cousins. Cousins was charged with a serious crime, Downie had hockey-related issues.

Take that with a grain of salt. He obviously can't say "We aren't picking him because of the legal allegations"
