And even if he does make it, he will be the 7th D-Man, not a major contributor.

I'd say Pedan has no shot in hell. If he wasn't named for the Subway Super Series, he's not making Russia's WJHC team. I know he was suspended, but the teams roster was named quite a bit prior to the series.
You severely underrate Reinhart if you think all of those guys could be ahead of him at this point. IMO, Reinhart is arguably the best shut-down defenseman on that list. Murray is probably the only one who is better as far as pure defense goes. The rest of the players on that list are either offensive oriented, or just flat out not on Reinhart's level.

He'll be on the team or he'll be injured. One or the other.
