While others look for any excuse not to play in the Worlds, he's always answered the call. I think he gets rewarded for that.
Fair point about his dedication to the national team. Personally, I've just soured on JJ over the past couple years. I think some of the younger guys are better. I'd rather take a Carlson, Shattenkirk, or Leddy.

Personal preference/a guess. Went back and forth between Fowler and Leddy. So many young guys, it just remains to be seen who steps up and who regresses as we get closer to the games.
