I questioned it at the time, but it was fine for ZG in the end. Two different cases, though. ZG was playing with adults for the first time in the AHL this year, and wasn't allowed to go. Ristolainen won't go and he has already been playing vs. adults (wont drop down to play vs. just juniors?)
Also think the strength of the Finland team versus Latvia is reason to separate the two cases as well, though in the end, you're right... He won't go either.
