I think Finn will get invited next year, assuming he keeps up this level of play.

He's a captain, good leader, puts up points, and is steady. I think sometimes we forget just hwo difficult it is to make the WJ team as an underager. There are a TON of good players who werent even invited to canadas WJ camp in the NHL, and some players who were stars at the WJHC and it didn't translate.

For example, a guy like Percy... would probably make every other roster in the WJ's based on his skill... but doesn't even get invited to Canada's camp. Its not an easy feat... and doesn't mean the sky is falling, like Chicken Little ^^ suggests.
