That doesn't exactly make sense... Shouldn't you invite the best of the best to duke it out to see who exactly is the best? Canada didn't invite Nathan MacKinnon or RNH or Justin Schultz to "show them the ropes". USA didn't invite Jack Campbell. Russia didn't invite Anton Slepyshev. I doubt Sweden invites Klefbom...
I understand where you're coming from, but as a selector (not a developer) of talent, you'd have to attempt to build towards the future event, not the general future: I think USAH sees Trouba as a better player than Petry, and in that case, I wish them luck.
