Points taken but I still say this possible lockout team doesn't quite dominate on the level of those last 2 lockout clubs.


Let's wait and see, I figure the players cave before this happens anyway.

So you aren't going to believe in Subban until he actually does it, just because some other goaltenders have failed for Canada? The way Subban has been playing he has more similarities to Price and Mason than he does to the more recent goaltenders. You use the Summit against the skaters, but you don't care that Subban also played and did quite well? That is overly pessimistic.



Well if the lockout continues we will get the chance to see, my friend.
