Subban will represent Canada at WC

P.K Subban will represent Canada at WC. Markov didn't get invited yet while Plekanec and Eller were chosen by their countries.

Great news, at least we'll have something to watch. I wonder if Desharnais and Gorges might possibly get invited too?

OMG!! Best news of the day!

2014 He comes Subban .

He is already a decorated Junior athlete with 2 gold medals. If he helps us win out this year, he's a shoo-in IMO.

Tavares will also be going, so Subban and Tavares are back together. Phaneuf also going. Phaneuf with Subban pairing? I like.

You want Gorges in to play #7 D? Or Desharnais as a #3-4C (or 13th forward)?

Subban will play #3-4D unless Phaneuf-Subban is the top line...

Also what a workhorse he is.

I've calculated his ATOI over his past 30 games and it's 25.4 minutes. Still on, damn.

expected but nice to see confirmed...

I'm betting that Subban quickly emerges as the teams #1 dman, at least depending on who the coach is.

Subban will rip it up on the bigger ice surface


hoping DD/Gorges get invites as well, a bit less likely, though depending on what teams have an early exit and what players decline an invite, they should get some consideration.


if Kaberle's not going b/c he declined the invite (and/or his mystery injury is serious enough to keep him out), he'd better be 100% committed to getting his arse in shape during the offseason.

even then, as we saw with Gomez, it may be too little too late, but the very least he could do is show up in camp fit and determined to be an serious NHLer again, as opposed to just coasting on reputation and smooth passing.

Cole declined due to injury and his wife's pregnancy... (child due very soon).

Really? I'm not really all that surprised personally because his play has slipped due to injury and all but there are some on this board still claiming he's the next Lidstrom. This news should bring them back to earth.

I am surprised and somewhat disappointed that Budaj and Kaberle refused (according to rds) the invitation. On Kaberle's defence, he just recovered from his injury.

Subban did step his game up a notch around mid season: he was HUGE => no surprise but happy nonetheless!


PS I still hope for an invite to Gorges and Desharnais.

-------------------

Edit:

According to http://www.rds.ca/canadien/chroniques/338282.html:

Price: refused the invitation (commotion)
Kaberle: refused the invitation (still recovering from his injury?)
Budaj: refused the invitation (?)
Markov: no invitation yet + undecided
Subban: confirmed
Pacioretty: confirmed
Eller: confirmed
Plekanec: confirmed
