It has nothing to do with talent or development, Canada has the best to pick from.

It's coaching and politics. RNH didn't make the team 3 years ago despite being the highest scorer in the WHL. You have a guy like Ryan Murphy making the team over Corrado who looked solid in camp. Even after the many shaky starts by Subban, there wasn't even a consideration of playing Binnington, who looked great in camp and the last 15 minutes of the game today.

Hockey Canada is biased and has their favorites. If Spott wasn't the coach this year there was no way Murphy would have made the team, and thats how it should have been. I don't know much about Spott, but i'd prefer a coach who encouraged the players to play a more physical game. Guys like Camara and Jenner were barely a physical presence and that's highly due to the coaching and rolling of the lines.
