I see your point; and while I don't wholeheartedly disagree with it, given the challenges Hockey Canada faces in getting players to commit to the WHC in normal years, this year will be especially challenging as the NHL season ends just 6 days before the start of the WHC. I don't think HC is in any position to be too picky on who agrees while at the same time giving consideration to possible Olympic scenarios using the WHC as a trial run. I think HC should try and win one tourney at a time and put off planning for the Olympics until the summer...
HC has thrown away far too many of these tournaments since Vancouver. It's time for HC to get its head out of its a$$.

But to your point, of course I want Olympic Gold above all else and I don't give a flying **** about the WHC.
