I do think the forwards on the Swedish team have great depth this year and can overcome MZ not being there. Honestly, if I were running an NHL team I would almost always let my U20 players have the option to go, unless they are getting front line NHL minutes. I think this tournament is a good development tool, but more importantly an opportunity to represent your country in a fashion that you typically only get one or two shots at. For many young players, it's a lifelong dream. I am happy that Zibinejad got to experience that last year, and even score the championship winning goal. He may never have a bigger one in his career.
