As far as Subban, I can understand Spott not wanting to create distraction in net, but Subban right now may be the second best goalie on TC. I know he has the track record and all, but he is under a load of pressure right now.
I was a big fan of both goalies in their draft years and actually wanted the Bruins to draft Binnington two years ago - but that's a story for a different day.
Subban got the starters for three reasons: He has more international experience, he handles the pressure slightly better than Binnington, and in the event of a shootout, there isn't a goalie in the tournament that has a better track record than Subban. (something that has to be considered in a tournament like this)
Spott isn't the type of coach to sit on his hands. If Subban costs them a game early, he'll make the switch.
Taking off the biased glasses here, but if it was my call, I would have started Binnington in game one and Subban in game two and gone from there.
