Perhaps my expectations of him were too high... but considering he's the "#1" defenseman on that team with Murray out and that he's supposedly NHL ready... I'm not that impressed. This is including his play in the OHL in the last year or so. All I see is a Cody Franson clone.

Subban hasn't dominated or made big key saves either but I don't think he's to be blamed on most of the goals so far.

Canada will need big saves though going forward. You need top notch goaltending at a tournament like this, not just average.
I agree, I'm not into the Hamilton hype. He's a good player and a solid prospect, but really, in international play he's been mediocre at best. He was okay at last year's WJC, sub-par at the CAN/RUS Challenge in the summer, and mediocre in this year's WJC as well.

Not impressed at all. People hype this kid like he's the second coming of Zdeno Chara.
