Right, I did know those rules now that you mention it. Don't know what I was thinking though.
Question corrected: has any Canadian (not injured) players playing below NHL-level ever been forced out of Canadian WJC team?
Answer is probably no, and in my honest opinion - there ought to be rules stating that any junior not playing in their NHL team SHOULD go to their national team unless injured or officially retired (well, thats not going to happen).
No "decide for yourself kid, we'll let you have the final decision" as you know some wouldnt dare travel to the WJCs with that pressure from their employer.
