Similar thing happening for Team USA. Obviously there's been a bit of anti-Petry bias on their behalf in years past, but I think this is beyond that - it's just a developmental opportunity for these kids at camp. None of them are coming along to Sochi.
Another guy in a similar boat is Andy Greene. Definite top pairing defenseman. But just not a guy Hockey USA has been a fan of. They love their former WJHC kids, or guys that came up through the USANDTP
I feel WHC is a world different from the Olympics (no pun intended). But I agree, especially on that Andy Greene part.
And they invited Seth Jones?!? Okay, maybe they're just nutty.
