There are 12 players on the recall list right now that are invited to Team Canada (Pouliot, Harrington, Strome, Hamilton, Huberdeau, Dumba, Reinhart, Rattie, Rielly, Scheifele, Wilson, and Jenner are the 12)
. Only Hamilton, Huberdeau and maybe Strome are NHL ready. The rest won't be recalled. Huberdeau will definitely be recalled, Hamilton won't (there is already a log-jam on the Bruins' back end) and Strome might. Still, he have the forwards to replace those 2. Mac will probably be the 1st line center then.
Actually Strome, Reinhart and Dumba are NOT on the recall list, but Corrado is. Unless it was somehow updated. As seen here:
