The big difference is that in a World Junior tourney or Memorial cup its the best players playing.
This is a watered down tournament and one of the best players on the team, and a topten scorer in the best, most predominate league in the world, containing the lionshare of best players in the world, hardly got icetime.
Lets pose a question here. If Hall is a topten NHL scorer for the Swedes, US, Finns, Germany, Czechs, Swiss, France would he get mega icetime?
Sure he would.
