What does that have to do with the Worlds?

He's going to play on a team better than the Habs and against teams better than the Bruins. If you want to argue the level of intensity, ok I buy that....

What I'm saying is, he's going to be put in a position to use his strengths and he's going to flourish.. Something he rarely gets to do here.

Club teams and national teams are not easily comparable I think the level of play of a club that played many seasons together can over-play the talent of a national team. It's not an exact science but I guess it's always circumstantial.

It will be interesting to find out who Subban will end up defending with and what pairing he ends up on. I hope he's going to be eating up some good minutes to showcase his skill on big ice. Possibilities are Keith, Phaneuf, Schenn. I wouldn't mind either to be honest. Schenn would be a personal favourite I think, because he can stay back and let Subban work it, while being a hard hitting thread for any attacker on either side of the ice. And if he is to be paired with Keith it would suppose they are going top heavy on the first pairing.

lol, I completly disagree, any international team in the world is weaker then the defending stanley cup champ. international teams don't get to practice daily for a 82 games season as a preparation for their tournaments. So skills and talents in this case are easily overpassed by team chemistry and strategies.
It's like you're saying brazil or italy or germany are better then Barca or real.

Hopefully PK doesn't catch the stupids from Phaneuf. I suggest Subban is made to wear a particulate mask so as to avoid any possible airborne contaminants that Phaneuf may be emitting.

This is a clear sign that Subban has no intentions of signing long term with the Habs. We should trade him, Kristo and Plekanec for the 1st overall pick. That way we can get Galchenyuk and Yakupov.

I hope Subban obliterates all competition. Its his showcase for the Olympics.

It won't be easy for him to make it but he has a slight chance.

Canada's roster is looking pretty strong. I'll be surprised if they don't come out on top in this tourny.

That defense would get eaten alive in the Olympics. After Keith and Subban, I'd trust Methot the most.

Schenn is terrible and Phaneuf is extremely overrated.. The good part is that Subban should get plenty of ice time.

Price ? He played two years prior to them lol !

Other teams that looks to be good are USA(Also called U.S of Patches) and Sweden.


And why did they add in Blue cones in the lineup?
