and the tourney is really a 19 year old one... If you take a team of 18 year olds than you are missing out on some highly skilled mature 19 year olds ... and its hard to believe that is the best team you can field by ignoring the older 19 year olds..

Yep, he was named to Team Slovakia the same day Canada announced the selection camp.

As for his draft position, remember he was in the 2002 draft as well, but he had a terrible year and went undrafted, I would guess a lot of teams just stopped looking at that point, assuming he would never break out. Along with his size and disapointed playoff preformance last year a lot of teams just ignored him, hopefully he'll be a good steal for the Leafs.
Hey not just size....which I think is bunk..

Williams is 5'11" 185...Philly first round pick Mike Richards is 5'11" 175 lbs..

Williams stats are better than Richards and skating speed is also the knock against Richards... So why is one guy drafted 1st round and the other 7th round??

Williams looks a touch bigger than Datsyuk.

Pavel Datsyuk Center
Born Jul 20 1978 -- Sverdlovsk, Russia
Height 5.10 -- Weight 168 -- Shoots L
Selected by Detroit Red Wings round 6 #171 overall 1998 NHL Entry Draft

He can't play in the League at that size ....Can he...????

NHL teams are so hung up on size that they overlook talent ..

Go Figure....
