We dont have the depth we used to have... we need to get back to this depth...
What makes me laugh are posters on this site arguing about how many teams can canada ice...LOL we cant even ice a winning team...
its a joke
This is not why they are great skaters though, you could argue they play well because they are used to playing on big ice but several players on teams that play on big ice are terrible skaters. You will be a good skater if you work on it which is what Subban does being such a hard offseason worker and what Americans focus on more than Canadians in youth hockey.
