Oilers draft pick shot down Canada in the Worlds

Fredrik Pettersson scored the winning goal in a shootout and Sweden defeated Canada.

I saw the game and some other Canada's games too. When Hall and Eberle were on the ice the game went to wrong direction especially this game when the competition level was high. At this point they would not be scoring machines in the top European leagues like KHL. Which means they are second liners in the SC contending team at best.

To make even playoffs next season means we need in our scoring lines and we need to get rid of our role players who should be minor leaguers: Horcoff, Smyth, Belanger, Smithson, Petrell, Eager Hordi, Jones, Whitney, Potter, Schultz, Khabibulin. None of these would not have made the national team like Switzerland and Finland who have built up their teams around European players(read it NHL third liners at best )
