I just recall seeing a tweet from Bob MacKenzie or someone saying that.

Although, didn't Brossoit get lit up against the Russians in the summer?
Yeah, Mackenzie did say something along those lines. Just one of those cases where not everything you read from these guys is 100% accurate.

And yes, Brossoit did struggle in the game during the summer but either way it is a good indication that he was viewed to be ahead of Binnington at that time. Maybe that performance did hurt his chances, but that would seem unlikely considering he squashed those concerns during the SSS.

At the end of the day I think the decision was based on familiarity. It is not the end of the world but it may end up hurting HC moving forward if Subbans struggles continue.
