Just re-read your OP. What a shame that is.

Good call, his stats this year certainly make a strong case to be on team USA given their selections.

I have a hard time understanding how Austria or even Slovenia can't field an Olympic hockey team, yet China can.

Well, the reason for him not being called is purely health-related. Otherwise he would be on the team. He said on a number of occasions to the media and the national team staff that the state of his knee is just too bad and he needs all the rest he can get to be in shape for the rest of his Avalanche career. No more Hejduk on the national team

Either you're suggesting that Kopitar and Vanek are ladies, or you're not aware that China only competes in women.
