There is an interesting problem for teams to deal with in the World Junior Championships this year.  After the tournament begins teams cannot change their rosters.  In event of injury, teams sometimes have to compete shorthanded.  With 22 man rosters, it is rare that there are enough injuries that this becomes a problem.  However this year there is a potential problem.  If the NHL season begins during the tournament (or more likely training camp), there are five or six players who would be called up from the junior squad to their NHL training camp.  That would leave Canada seriously shorthanded.  Does that make it too big a risk to take to play all the best NHL calibre junior players on the Canadian World Junior Team?
