It's not surprising that he was cut.

The WJC is a speed game, and Logan's strength is not speed. That, and the fact that three returnees from last year and Victor Mete (with 27 games of NHL experience) are probably a lock, made it unlikely that we'd see him make the team.

Agreed. We've had quite a few really big D-men come through the Rangers (Valabik, Sol, etc) and they very rarely end up with a solid NHL job in the end. Unfortunately that huge size ends up being a liability from a speed perspective. Every big guy can't have the skills of Zdeno Chara.

I recall a rumour that Devereaux Heshmatpour was beaten in a skating speed competition by goalies wearing their full equipment...not sure if it was true, but it sure was plausible given how slow he was.

We won't be unrepresented at the tournament. Adam Liska made Team Slovakia.
