Since this tournament is technically not a IIHF tournament, apparently the IIHF nationality rules will not apply. So Petr Nedved can play for the Czechs and Nabokov can play for the Russians. Are there any other exceptions like this? I write this, because it is POSSIBLE that Dany Heatley won't make team Canada. Since he was born in Germany, could the Germans ask him to play? I'm sure he wouldn't, but it could happen right? What about a guy like Antropov, he's a Kazak. But could the Russians ask him to play, if the senior Russian players opt not to play for Tikhonov?
