My guess would be because he hasn't dressed for a game yet.

Edit: Beaten to it, still a stupid rule though.

Oh wow, I didn't realize that was the rule. I guess it makes sense in theory, but still that sucks. There's a similar rule in the NHL for the Cup isn't there? Like you have to play 40+ regular season games or dress one finals game or something?

It's kind of ridiculous that Byslma hasn't gotten him in game yet especially when Orpik & Martin are basically two of your regular defensemen.

Yep, 41 Games or 1 SCF Game.

Yeah it's something like that in the NHL as well. I don't like it for neither.

Yeah it sucks, but I get it. It sucks 100% for the Olympics. It shouldn't be that way. But for the Cup I think it is a good rule. Otherwise, how do you make the cut? There are a ton of guys that are on the roster for a day or less and never dress or play one or two games. Do they all get on?

Dick move by the coaching staff. How can you do that to a guy. Invite him, have him practice but not dress him for a single game and tell him to **** off when everybody else is getting a medal (if they get a medal).

The NHL rule is that they don't get their names on the cup, right? I think most teams give out rings anyway. I've heard of players not playing many games, but since they did in the year, they were given a championship ring

Is this true?

I don't think Khabibulin dressed for the CIS in 1992, but he was supposed to get a gold medal when they won (Viktor Tikhonov, the coach, took the medal instead). Khabby was evetually given a 1992 gold medal during the 2002 tournament.

I have operated under the assumption that you needed to play a game in order to receive a medal. However, I haven't seen a clear indication one way or another while searching for a definitive answer.

That was a hell of a shot. Nice considering Canada has had most of the play.
