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

Coach will be Rich Chernomaz, longtime DEL Coach and now in Ingolstadt. The Rest of the staff are also "German based". Dont think Rich will be in play for any bigger tournament.
I think its a bit like Spengler Cup, Canada has a big Name and trys to give a good show with little effort (costs).

A Team Canada with Thornton,Nash,Giroux,Myers would have been great one hour away from my home, too bad...
