Since Canada has an abundance of hockey talent, why not change the selection process?... Everyone is always talking about how no one players is bigger than the team, and that team chemistry is the most important in Canada. If thats the case, why not build on that philosophy to create a better team.. Lets make selection process similar to that of The Curling Briar and Scott tournaments of Harts. Where each province compete to represent Team Canada. Instead of provinces we have the 3 Canadian Junior Leagues compete in an all-star game to represent Canada. Benefits include greater team chemistry as most of these players would know each other because they play in the same league. Great scouting as these are the coaches that coach in these leagues. Great team test as its a best on best vs other Canadian Leagues. Now if we can beat each other in a game, why couldn't we feel confident that this Canadian team wouldn't be able to beat other countries. This is almost a great pre-tournament prep. Fairness. Greater opportunity for hockey players to represent their country, without being dependent on a great hockey year or the lottery.
