The only argument I have for Canada possibly being better is about the larger ice surface. It changes the game and give players like Grioux or Pietrangelo and it really helps them. The good thing is with players like Tavares and Pietrangelo having been awesome WJC players helps.

Then again Tavares on the big ice doesn't necessarily play into his style of game.
That can only be determined once we see them in action. No doubt, Tavares skating isn't his greatest strength, but it's vastly improved over the past few years, and being 1 of Canada's top centers, you can't exclude him based on average skating. I've seen Tavares play on big ice in Europe, I don't think it's an issue.
