Even the Coach is not the "real" one.

I`m not talking about best possible, but some NHL Players would have been nice. Maybe it`s also a insurance problem like the NHL Player from Germany who are also not playing.
True, Canada is a bit of a special case. I guess that from their point of view, the main benefit of that kind of tournament is to give staff experience with internation hockey and short competitions and to see if they can work there way to a World Championship or Olympic team.

Just a guess, but I can't think of any other reason for Canada to play in this tournament.
