This may be a stupid question...

Why did Hockey Canada bother to have Wotherspoon in the SS? I mean, he was there for only one game, and I thought he was one of the better defencemen that night. I think he played a very solid game overall.

However, I think there is about a 0% chance he makes the cut. I realize there are a lot of players they wanted to see, but why invite someone who for all intents and purposes, not get an invite to camp? I am a Flames fan, and I do think Wotherspoon has some potential as a future NHL'er, but nobody here has slotted him into any lineups - and I have to agree with that. He isn't at that level.

So why 'waste' a spot for him in the SS? I was personally happy to see him there, and I think it was a great experience for him, but why would Hockey Canada include him in the SS? I can see why they had Drouin - though I don't he will end up making the final squad, he definitely is a player with a possibility.
