but it's obvious looking at the way that team played that offensive numbers weren't the primary focus there. They wanted a specific type of team there, one that could just own the puck and win physical battles and all that stuff. St.Louis was getting pushed off the puck fairly regularly when he played and I really don't think he fit what they were looking for in this team. Probably was added after Stamkos was ruled out just to try and smooth things over. I lost a lot of respect for St.Louis after he threw a fit. Even in the post game comments he seemed upset that he didn't play more... I just don't get it. Team Canada is the hardest team to make and they have the luxury of selecting not just the best players but guys who fit what they're looking for, it's not the kind of thing that a guy should get bent out of shape over.
