It's the Sens job to put him in the best environment to develop...I can't see how their decision is something to gripe over. But most fans do gripe irrationally, and you appear to be just like most fans.
This will be one of the best WJC tournmanets in history, Zibby has a chance to compete against Yakupov, Huberdeau, RNH, Hamilton, Noessen - this will be a tournament of stacked competition and we are keeping him away from that?

I don't see why it's irrational to ask a #6 overall pick to go to a tournament and dominate it against the best competition in his age group. I do expect him to dominate a tournament like this, and he should dominate it, the reason he sin't going is because the Sens are worried he can't or won't dominate
