Back when we were winning golds it was actually because we were picking the team based on roles as opposed to now trying to jam 9-12 point scorers onto a roster... im not sure why Canadian selection took that turn. I thought he should have been invited to camp at the time so the hindsight doesnt much apply here to me. There used to be spots on the 4th for 2-way, energy ,lead by example type players. 21 in 22 isn't too great but you're wrong, intangibles are what make up a bottom 9 or 12 role. Atleast history makes that suggestion.
