I'm a HUGE Subban fan, I hope he signs with Montreal long term...HOWEVER, I feel many of you are undervaluing Canada's young defensemen....In 2010 Team Canada had: Niedermayer, Pronger, Boyle, Weber, Seabrook, Keith and Doughty.

I could see 3 returnees...possibly 4 (Weber, Doughty, Keith....Seabrook). Take into consideration natural progression of all players and not just Subban, remove any "future NHLers" possibilities (i.e. Murray,etc) and look at current NHLers. I don't see Subban in the top 7 needed to make the team.

I could see Pietrangelo, Myers, Burns making the team before Subban (just to name a few). The thing is with such a stacked team offensively, what Subban brings to the team is already covered by Doughty,Weber and co, the need is to have big defensemen that can move bides out of Price's way in the crease like a Pietrangelo.
