Brent Sutter instilled a team mentality among his Canadian players in the past few days, but the head coach of the national junior team got on a plane to Copenhagen on Sunday night without a clear view of what his final roster will be.

True, Sutter has to cut just three players — or four, or five, depending on the availability of Morgan Rielly and Sean Monahan — to arrive at a 22-man roster, due to the International Ice Hockey Federation on Dec. 25, the day before the 2014 world junior kicks off in Malmo, Sweden.
