Even if it's a good thing for Rielly I'd personally want Murray to be there. We haven't tasted gold in almost 4 years and I'm craving a WJC championship. Plus HFBoards seems to have a lot of annoying people on the main board who are from outside Canada and they love taking their digs and ripping us new ones everytime we lose. It would be nice to see them shut up for a bit and have the best possible team we can, like '05.
Losing Murray definitely increases team Canada's need for a defensive defense-man and a leader. Hopefully Percy gets the nod.
He should get a chance to make the team, especially considering how similar his game is to Murray's. He'll be fighting with Siemens, Dumba, Reinhart, Ceci, and others for the job so it would really mean something if he's able to crack the squad. Having Rielly, Biggs, and Percy at the WJC would be a great showing for Leafs prospects.
