Armalis and Katulis are the only ones who for some reason did it anyway.
Players playing on the first line in this tournament like Zidkovas or Kuliesius would be a 4th liners in the WC team if everyone was available.
Ok so basically they just didn't want to travel for training camp or whatever? I just thought it was odd since they always play in the WC's. I'm local to the team they play for and I often line their games.
