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.
I'm excited to see Finn as a leader on the 2014 WJC team. From what I've read, he's been performing very well this year. Another year in junior, plus a good run at the WJC, plus a year or two in the AHL could net us a quality D-man. Not to say that this is the only formula that will work for Finn, but it seems like a decent development path.
