You ask what's wrong with Canadian hockey? It's this. We won't hold our players accountable. These guys get an easy ride all the way up based on pedigree and they're never held accountable for how they play. I can almost guarantee most of these players will go home and their parents will tell them it was somebody else's fault, just like they've probably been doing their entire lives.
But doesn't accountability start with the coaches? Right from the camp it was clear Spott wasn't choosing players because they earned but rather their previous pedigree.

He continually kept giving major minutes to players who were being out played by teammates in game.
