There are good 94 born players that Canada didn't take because Hockey Canada believes this is a tournament for 19 year old players. i.e. Age trumps skill. Hopefully Hockey Canada now rethinks that philosophy. It's been debunked. The U20 Tournament is a tournament of skill not age.
Sweden has a strong returning team next year.
Canada should take the 18 year olds and work specifically with them in high level training and work towards a gold medal for 2015.
