P.K. gets consideration for the summer camp and is right up there to get the call in December provided his play continues to trend upwards. I've been impressed with his play this year for the first time since his call up in the Play offs a few seasons back.
Subban has undoubtedly been quite good this year. It's too bad he had that last minute injury before the last WC. At first I thought he was mainly being touted by Montreal homers, but I was wrong.
In any event, he looks like a good bet to go to the summer camp. He isn't helped by being a right handed shot and Canada has a plethora of puck moving defencemen, but he has to have a chance at this point. I like that his defensive game is at a level where I wouldn't be nervous to have him on the ice with someone like Letang, though I probably wouldn't use him to kill penalties. I really like that he played four years of junior in Belleville on the international size ice.
