I think its time Hockey Canada cuts the crap with the 36 - 40 players camp and just do what the Americans do, that is bring in 3 - 4 extra forwards, and 2 - 3 extra D.

I know Steve Spott would have preferred this (firstly because he said he wanted a small camp, second because no one was added for Scissons), but you really get the feeling HC wouldnt let that be the case with the lockout

They would've had only 30-32 players at camp but they brought more in case of the recall to the NHL.

It could've meant the loss of RNH, Hubredeau, Shiefele, Murray (had he not been injured), Hamilton, Rielly.

Plus they like to bring in some 17 year olds to give them a taste for camp. (in this case a few of them may surplant some 19 yr olds)
