Make it three goals in four games including the SSS, two of them being game-winners. I hear what you are saying, but the fact that Wotherspoon made the team instead of Dumba means that the team was not fully predetermined. It just seems to me that they took Wotherspoon over Corrado for reasons other than quality of play, which just doesn't sit right with me.
The other point worth consideration, as far as the camp goes, is that there is still this impending threat of player recall from the NHL, meaning that some of the cuts would be brought back in, therefore it still made sense to have them there in the heat of the camp competition.
