Reinforcing old habits, and the "it works in junior" play style will have a negative impact on RNH.
He is already on Team Canada's radar. That argument does not hold water either. Junior play will not be the deciding factor in a roster spot, being on a line with two other candidates will be. Ask the SJ Sharks how that process works.
Its about what is good for the Edmonton Oilers. Not the fans. And certainly not RNH's trophy case.
Mike Richards, Dion Phaneuf, Brent Seabrook, Shea Wber, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry, Patrice Bergeron.
Ask any of them if playing a handful of mid-season AHL games would be better than world juniors.
