Canada HAS to have a big camp, that is how deep the talent pool is in this country.

Not many people had Shinkaruk or Corrado getting a sniff, and right now they've been two of the better performers so far.
This exactly. While 2/3 of the team may be proverbial locks, there are still a good chunk of positions that come down to camp. You also get a chance to see chemistry etc. Ie Ritchie with Strome, see if Mackinnon and Drouin can still complement each other on smaller ice.

For guys like Reinhart and Corrado their play together today could very well be the decision on whether or not Spott wants to take them as that 3rd pairing.

Murphy and Sproul could definitely seal their own fate today as well.
