Thank you. I expected disagreement and appreciate discussing the merits of alternatives. I'd like to hear your better options.

I also disagree these players aren't valuable in international play. The US junior team beat Canada because Canada played like a disorganized all star team while the US team had players who knew their roles and fit the place. I will gladly hear your better options.
