It wasn't all on Spott, but the bottomline is team wasn't prepared to play. Canada has a sense of entitlement at international hockey events, and it's probably good they get knocked down a peg here and there. Maybe some worthwhile changes will come from Hockey Canada. I'll be interested to see if the CHL makes an changes short/long-term on non-Canadians' participation.
