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.
agreed, the Q did it right. Pick a team and play them two games.
Why did the OHL and WHL have some players( Strome)for two games that are slam dunks for the WJC? Isn't this about looking at prospects?
