ne1 else here get the feeling one of the incentives to signing gervais and keeping him this long is to help him get a spot on team canada? i mean its small but a great ploy. hes surely making headlines in the q now. if he was sent back sooner, i would totally dismis him on CAN, but i believe now hes gonna make it

Sure they want him to play in the WJC, but if he didn't perform well, I believe he would have been long gone back to Q.

this allows the Isles to call him up after his junior season is over - aka for the NYI playoff run as a 7th d-man...

I think he was going to be on Team Canada anyway. He was one of the best dmen in the summer camp.

And it is very uncommon for Quebec to send a defensmen to the U20's
