I don't see the difference whatsoever, this basically just looks like a guy who wants to whine.

Yakupov would be in the NHL if it weren't for the lockout... you could likely say that about another handful of players.

Why would you tell someone "sorry you're too good" because he played in the NHL last year? Especially a guy who didn't make the world junior team 2 years ago when he was in junior, RNH was cut in favour of Sean Couturier. Should Smith-Pelley have been disallowed from playing last year as well? Or not because he wasn't a "first line centre" already.

This is a tournament for the best players born 1993 or later, plain and simple.
