Happens every year, and isn't surprising in the least.
And, of course, the notion of icetime influencing a player's ability to impact the game is the opposite of outlandish - it's better described as stating the obvious.
notorious for reflexively leaning on their vets? what are you talking about? notorious amongst whom? you talk as though you're part of some inner hockey circle. you're really reaching here.
the best players play the most. that's it. at the wjc, the best players are often the oldest players. that makes sense.
to suggest there was mass panic against germany, and that canadian wjc coaches are notorious for anything is absolutely crazy.
just admit you were wrong and try to give the kid some credit.
