I don't necessarily think the Canucks should go out their way to draft the kid, but if he's there by the time they make their pick and none of the other guys that they had an eye on made it to that point, then I think Subban is a good pick, regardless of whether or not the Canucks need another goalie. This draft just sounds like a complete crapshoot with fairly middling prospects.
Schneider played in 2 tournaments. In his first one, he only got into part of one game - the US completely wet the bed, and he was left with a dubious 7.94GAA and a .625SVP.
The next year, the WJC was held in Vancouver. He was arguably one of the US's top players, and I think he won Player of the Game for them at least twice, including once against Canada. He was definitely a standout at that one.
