Im guessing Nurse wasnt the 'safer' pick.
The point is theres other guys that team Canada could have taken over these guys and they decided not to. Both Ekblad and Reinhart earned their spot on team Canada this year, people shouldn't try to take that away from them.

And it remains to be seen if Alzner or Staal make the team over Subban or Phaneuf. Personally I think it might happen, but the only reason that Alzner or Staal make the team over Subban is because they are left handed shots. The 2014 Defence looks like this IMO:

Keith-Weber
Bouwmeester-Pietrangelo
Phaneuf-Doughty

Seabrook, Alzner
