It's not a "real" tryout. The camp is probably the least important part of this whole process.

Hockey Canada has been evaluating them from the Ivan Hlinka, to league play, to Super Series performance this summer.

The camp is really only good for those last 2-3 spots where you've got some tough decisions to make. Pouliot wasn't going to make this team, and given Dumba's past performance they've given him the benefit of the doubt, to live another day. He likely won't make it either.
