Who cares if Malcolm cant handle being usurped as the starter? Bottom line is he was given the chance in the first place, which is more than Brossoit got.
I don't get how bringing in LB helps prove that the people running hockey Canada are making the right moves. I was shocked when he was cut and now Canada is going to be kicking themselves because of it. Two wrongs don't make a right.

I mean, Canada hasn't had decent goaltending since Carey Price and I'm starting to wonder if It has more to do with the way they are handled. It's not like Sweden and Finland have goaltenders that were drafted top 10 at the draft. The talent is there for them to mold like clay.

Subban clearly has to play better and needs to take responsibility for his play but I don't want this to turn into the MacBlender where we have a different goaltender every night.
