The WJC is much more meaningful than the WC at least to Canadians.

I'm sure that he'll look back one day and be glad that he was able to represent his country at the WJC.
It has a lot to do with it as he's no longer an amateur.

It's like saying a world boxing champion should go to the Olympics.

At this point in his career it's a step back and I question whether or not he would really want to be there.
