Marc freakin Methot... the 2 goal 9 pt + 2 defensive dynamo in now in Canada's group of top 12 d-men in the country. What more proof does one need to understand how utterly inept Hockey Canada is as an organization. I've had my fill just about of Hockey Canada incompetence for the past 3 years.
Well, that is pretty ridiculous. My thought is that they are attempting to motivate players to accept invitations to the WC this year. Methot has been a good soldier these last few years, so throwing this out there might just be their way of subtly saying that participation at that tournament counts when it comes to Olympics. I'm hoping they're just blowing smoke.
