I listed the players who were sure bets to be in Ufa, and said nothing about being invited to training camp. A number of players impressed sufficiently in the SSS to merit an invitation to Novogorsk. That was the purpose of bringing them over. The whole purpose of this idiotic line of discussion is to somehow demonstrate that Canada is superior because they had more different players playing in the SSS. It only proved that, like anywhere else, only a small cadre of CHL players are ready for international competition. We all know the names of the guys who will show up for Canada in Ufa - the rest were just background extras!
