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.

Thanks, but why couldn't they just add the better players that were not in the playoffs?

Some went and others didn't for Team Canada due to injuries or personal reasons such as Doughty and Crosby.
