Also how does Grilli qualify to play for team Italy in the WBC? He was born in Michigan and his father was born in Brooklyn. Are the rules really lax when it comes to this?

I'm so used to the IIHF being super strict with rules on national teams.
They use ancestry for eligibility...it's the only way for places like Italy and Israel to actually have a roster.

It's one of million reasons why I can't take that tournament seriously.

Hell, Jameson Taillon is on Team Canada and he was born in Florida and raised in Texas.
