Granted he was only 19 at the time, he has a shot to redeem himself if the Avs don't make the post season. My bet is though he'll be a no show.

I just finished writing a 19 page business proposal and after 10 hours at the comp. my eyes are googly and my ramblings are riddled with mistakes.
Yep, he sucked for Canada, and that was after a pretty good season with the Avalanche as well. Still, I don't think he's ever turned down Team Canada. His comments have always seemed very positive towards international play. Just my hunch, but if the Canadians call him to go to Sweden I think he will say yes and it's almost certain that he'll be free at that time.
