Well there was no chance that Fata would have got exceptional status if they had that rule back then, and I'm not sure Spezza would have either.

Spezza would have. Over a ppg on a terrible battalion team at 15.

He was seen as "the next one" at that time.

Didn't Spezza make the WJ team at 16 as well?

Yes I know, but did they know he was going to do that before the season started? If they had the rule they have now I'm not sure Spezza would have got exceptional status. He very well could have.

also, how much interest did Tyler Myers show Canada before his jump?? or same with Jamie Oleksiak? these kids dont need some long history or track record to prove their choices...it usually happens real fast and real close to draft...and usually involves what helps their future career so dont kid yourself, Day will say whatever needed right now to better his career.
Oleksiak was born in Toronto and did attend school there for all that it matters.

He's 14 hardly a finished product, lots of development time left.

I know this post is probably just a joke, but birthright citizenship is pretty much just a North American concept, so he wouldn't really have a choice if he wanted to.
Since he moved to Singapore when he was a year old and neither of his parents have Belgian citizenship (I believe that you either have to be born to a parent with Belgian citizenship or that you stay in the country for an extended period of time to receive any), he doesn't have citizenship either.

Sean Day plays in America but he is Canadian and is definitely considering the potential of coming over to the OHL.

Mid February is when the process/review will be completed. Not sure if the decision will be made public immediately, but expect to know at the latest sometime in early March. I think it is a foregone conclusion that exceptional status will be granted.

I feel like HC will grant exceptional status to Day so that he doesnt decide to play for USA in the future, they want to start a relationship now.

This and to keep him out of USA collage hockey. Hockey Canada seems intent on funneling kids as much as possible away from American collages and into the CHL. Why? Business partnership with the CHL it seems has hockey Canada more preoccupied these days.

Why were there no American collage players on this year's junior team? Not only that, none were invited to camp. At least I didn't notice any on the invite list to camp.

Because none were good enough to make it, in a lockout year....the only two with a shot were Kevin Roy (who wasn't impressive in the summer series) or Phil DiGiuseppe (who was too much of a tweener to make it).

Was Mike Matheson of BC given any consideration?

February 15th is the deadline, as per Darren Dreger last night.
Will it be announced publicly then?
Hard to say because this is a unique situation.
It probably depends who Hockey Canada will be working in conjunction with to determine if he's good enough for ES.
The OHF has waited until the season is over to announce in the past (the last two came at the end of March).

Well, to play for the US in the future he'd either have to wait until he's 18 and apply for citizenship by himself or his parents would have to get citizenship since none of them have US citizenship.

Based on comments from all of them, they have no interest in doing so.

Oh look, you're complaining about a problem you made up again.

Exactly this.

With the other defensemen available, no.
Next year however, yes, I think he has a decent shot.
I expect he'll be one of a few college kids invited to the summer camp (Jankowski, Shore, maybe Khaira too).

You are telling me that of over the 500 Canadian players playing in Division 1 US collages don't merit more attention from HC? I find it a little too much not to have any USA collage representation at camp. I'm sorry, I'm just not buying it. Some funny things going down at HC.

If you want to bow down in the church of Hockey Canada and accept every little piece of horse**** they feed you, then buy a lot of ketchup.
