I'm with the people who would be furious if PK was left off the team.

Someone recently wrote how PK's Norris trophy is the only one in recent memory with asterisks next to it. The guy isn't respected enough for his skills and abilities... and his hockey IQ.

I remember last May at the World Championships, PK was the best Dman (and probably best player) on Team Canada against Sweden and was the only one who was really making things happening.

It's disgusting how the media pundits always underrate him... and his own coach Michel Therrien is giving them ammunition (some might say purposely) by not playing him on the PK and in ALL SITUATIONS like we know he can! That's a form of disrespect to the player in my books. Yeah, it's a team game, but when you have a player like Subban, you don't artificially impose random rules to break/mold him. Why? Because that means you're not treating players equally in a supposed meritocracy, and indeed are placing a HANDICAP on your best player for self-serving purposes.
