Because the NHL season didn't resume while the Olympics were happening so all players that were invited could go. But at the time of the world championship,the playoffs were in play and players who were invited were either eliminated or didn't make the playoffs. That's why team Canada couldn't keep their Olympic roster because several of them were on the quest to win the Stanley Cup.
