He plays well, and everyone still writes him off cause there is ''too much competition''?

Why would the Canada brass invite him if they know they are going to cut him right away even after a strong performance? It doesn't make sense.

If they invited him, and he impressed, he'll at least survive the first set of cuts.
I actually have liked him thus far. He has great speed and his rangy body and reach would work very well in a checking role. The problem is that with the 8 sitting out, it looks like there are two third line positions and two fourth line positions, plus the 13th. If he is going to make it, it will probably be in one of those two fourth line spots. I don't think the 13th forward will be an extra 3/4th line type, but someone more easily shuffled into all roles, like Monahan. MacNeill may have done enough to earn one of those spots. Wilson may have shown a lack of discipline and might be overlooked now for him. So Beauvillier is fighting with pretty large group of players for that last spot.
