Yep, I had the same question. Apparently they wanted to be able to showcase kids 25 and under on a team, PLUS have the older vets play (USA and CANADA)
I seem to remember hearing that, but since forgot it. What a joke of a tournament format. They may as well have a team full of goons or a team full of celebrities who can play hockey (basically Canadian celebrities).
