Hockey Canada will opt for the older players, (Thornton, St. Louis, Iginla, etc), which imo is a good thing, as they are all still better players at this point. Lets not bring young guys because they're young. Players like Skinner and Seguin have shown they can be good top six players in the NHL, but they haven't shown why they should be picked over players like Staal or St. Louis, who are still performing at elite levels.
Please God: No. That's exactly what lead to that terrible 2006 team: Putting more stock in experience than in talent.
