I hope this isn't the case, but I fear it might be. It reminds me of the 2006 Olympic Team for Canada, when they loaded up with veterans and aging players over the young, hungry players who would have made great additions to the team.

Sometimes, having those young and hungry guys can be a huge asset. If Drouin and MacKinnon are forcing the issue, I'd like to see them make the squad ahead of guys who may be older and can fill a niche role.
