Canada would be stupid not to take Giroux and Stamkos for Sochi if they decided not to play in this tournament. The Staal Brothers while I think they make it. They could fit into that theory though.

Canada is the best hockey nation but even they struggle to convince their guys to go to this tournament every year. They usually get a couple of stars players to go and fill the rest of the roster out with solid players and up and comers. Similar to the US but Canada has more depth and more quality players than them.

The European countries take this way more serious than the US and Canada.
