Given the biases that were involved in some of the WJC selections, I am not surprised he was cut. Although, he also did not have the best WJC camp. Perhaps the cut was a bit of a wake-up call and motivator. I'm sure there are similar situations that have happened in the past, for some reason Tyler Seguin (someone correct me on that) comes to mind. Whatever the case, I don't expect them to keep him for the season and burn a year of his ELC unless he becomes Scott Stevens reincarnate.
