Binnington had the better exhibition showing, for sure. Probably the better camp showing too. I watch them both in the OHL a lot more than this, and still think Subban is the better goalie who on average would give the team the better chances to win, however.

But all goalies run hot and cold at times, and so much of the game is mental. Plus, the team probably won't get a much clearer picture of who is really the guy to lean on from the first two games against Germany and Slovakia. Or at least, you can't rely on getting the toughest tests - could be surprises, but you can't rely on it. And then the big games against USA and Russia will be there in a hurry.

I guess I'd break the tie just on observation from practises and around the rink... if there's anything extra to go on there. Maybe there isn't.
