It just seems characteristic about what I don't like about Hockey Canada sometimes. So much emphasis on grit and character and hard-work all to bring home a bronze medal, while the skilled guys sit at home because they don't "fit the mould".

That said, all I know about Ho-Sang is what I see on the ice...I've heard the whispers about him not being a team player but they'd have to be pretty bad to keep him off a my opinion.
