With the answer so far being Tavares and crickets..

talk about elusive..
I think one major issue you're failing to see is that Canada isn't icing their best U20 lineup at the WJCs. Many players are in the NHL and aren't released for the games -- some players 2 years into their NHL career are still eligible for the WJC.

When you take that into account, Canada would be able to ice a significantly better lineup without those restrictions.
