Other clubs you mean and we are talking about just Nash, Thornton and Desharnais right? Nash and Thornton play for Davos and they dont lend out their players, they keep them and add reinforcements (Kane, Diaz, Brunner) to make themselves a little better. Desharnais plays for Fribourg who is also in the tournament, no reason to lend him to Canada either.
Canada gets players from the remaining NLA clubs who are not in the tournament and sometimes the AHL. In this case, the locked out players still in North America if they wish to join. Seguin, Spezza, Tavares and the others, if they wish to stay in Europe will play for Canada.
