If Spott is looking for goal scorers, I have a hard time believing he won't take a good look at the guy who's scored 30% of his teams goals.
The problem is that Puempel will have to play a top 6 winger role if he makes the team. Assuming that the lockout is still going on when the tournament rolls around, he will be competing with guys like RNH, Huberdeau, Scheifele, Strome, Rattie and MacKinnon just to name a few for those top 6 forward spots. At this point, I have a hard time seeing him overtaking any of those names that I just mentioned above whether he is playing for Team Canada's coach or not. Puempel will have to play better than he already is playing to make that team.
