He already won Gold and scored the winning goal.

Not sure what else there is for him to learn at this level.

I've gone on the record as saying that RNH shouldn't be going either. He's a man among boys at this point and it's pointless for his development.

As an NHL star, he's not a "junior" player anymore, even if he's "junior-aged".

The fact that he never got the opportunity to play in a WJC before gives me a tiny bit more sympathy for him than Zibanejad, who already had a winning experience.

Not to mention that Zibanejad is still learning the North-American game for the team that pays his salary, with whom he has a contract, while that isn't an issue for RNH.
