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.
This.

When I first looked at the WJC invite list I was hoping to see Finn there, but my first thought was "He'll definitely be there next year", at least on a tryout level. Guy is SO underrated.

Also, I'm very happy to see Biggs and Sparks invited to the US WJC camp. Both are having excellent years and Biggs is finally showing signs of why he was a first rounder in 2011. Rooting for them big time!
