No team is going to stop selecting players from a country because one of their prospects isn't being selected to the national team for a 5-7 game tournament. What sense would this make for Detroit?
Ottawa just kept Zibanejad away. While I think that would be overly harsh for Frk the fact remains he has signed his entry level deal Detroit does in fact have some say about this. They also have allowed Jiri Fischer to be very involved with the Czech national setup, I think what happened to Nedomlel is worth them at least having that internal discussion and maybe applying pressure through Frk's availability.
