I know not every player on stays on their national teams but I am sure that quite few do.
Hockey Canada splits up like that to give a nice experience to 100 kids, instead of 20 like the other countries. Had a chat with a few Team West kids and they seemed pretty happy about their tournament even though they ended 9th experience-wise. I'm fine with that. Canada had 3 competitive teams in the tournament that could have won medals. It didn't happen, so what?
