Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars was not invited to Team Canada's Olympic orientation camp, and is not holding back in terms of how he feels about it.

The 24-year old forward scored 12 goals and 21 assists for the Stars in 2013. In 263 career games, the 5th round pick from the 2007 NHL Entry Draft has registered 82 goals and 111 assists.
Benn signed a five-year, $26.25 million contract with the Stars prior to the start of the 2013 NHL season, and could play his way on to Team Canada if he comes out strong in October.
