A forward or a defensemen like Harrington/Reinhart will probably play with Murphy on the first powerplay unit and Rielly will be with Murphy on another PP unit. Expect there to be 3 powerplay units, one that's "Murphys", one where Murphy shares it with Rielly or Hamilton, and one that's Rielly-Hamilton.

I have a question for you guys:

I'm assuming that Dougie Hamilton will get a lot of PP time...who is likely to play the other side...Rielly or Murphy?
Considering who the coach is I'd be tempted to put money on Murphy getting more PP time.

Of course I figure if they are fine as a top pairing then keep them together for the PP as well. Create more chance to build up that chemistry and frankly Rielly more than has the skill to handle the job. Wouldn't be a crime to let Murphy handle the 2nd PP unit.

Not trying to kill the guy but, it would be outrageous if he got picked with the camp he had over other guys. Just my opinion. I haven't seen a single game of Rebels hockey so I'll take your word on that

I like run & gun speed/talent on the big ice surface. Remember the Olympic team they sent to Italy? You knew it was going to be a tragedy as soon as the roster was announced.

Exactly! I think Hockey Canada learned a few lessons with that. That was by far the worst tournament or exhibition of hockey I've seen from any Canadian national team in my life. Embarrassing.

My avatar shows you where my bias is. If we were down a goal with 2 minutes left and got a PP these are the 6 men I would want on:

Huberdeau -- Jenner -- Schiefele
Nugent-Hopkins
Hamilton -- Murphy

I feel bad for the Blue Jackets.. Murray injured... they need to hire a witch doctor, change their team name and jerseys... act like it's a new franchise.

I honestly wouldn't want Rielly on the PK against these calibre players. He is definitely a bit below average defensively. Not nearly as bad as Murphy mind you.

Just putting this out there, but if MacKinnon stays back a year in junior. We already have our top 2 C for next year's WJHC ;P MacKinnon and Connor McDavid. YeYe!

Dumba should of made it over Reinhart. Any one who really sees these 2 (Or just doesn't watch youtube vids or internet opinions) knows who's better. Or sniffs glue.

Dumba played his way off the team with his abysmal camp and Subway Series.

Yeah he's right and I'm not against Dumba at all. I'm not sure why he looked so lost out there. I felt he was the same way in the super series as well. And then at some points near the end of camp he seemed to push a little too hard to make a big play and he would get burned for it.

Drouin- Mackinnon - Monahan
Shinkaruk - McDavid - Hudon

....pretty good way to start I'd say.

He looked lost out there. He got beat numerous times by university kids..come on now. This team is about world class talent not guys getting blown by from some guys playing out their school years.
Using that same logic, Subban got beat clean by University kids (all of whom are much older than the players for team Canada) and had a poor camp so he has no business going to Ufa either.

I mean even if Mackinnon is in the NHL (and I'd say he'll be ready) that is one heck of a top 6! Can't wait to see McDavid in this tournament..

Murphy played surprisingly excellent defense throughout the scrimmages. That had to make the choice to bring him along pretty easy.

I am disappointed that Brossoit was left off the roster, but very excited that Wotherspoon made the team.

No matter how you slice it though, GO CANADA!

Or you know the fact that his .932 SV% in Belleville has contributed to them being second in their Conference despite being dead last in the league in goals? Or the fact he was great in the Summer Series and the Subway Series?

People need to get over the fact that he had a bad 30 minutes of hockey. Goalies have bad games. Malcolm Subban is the best Canadian goalie in the last two seasons combined. That is why he made the team.

Seriously, Subban was beyond excellent in the Subway series. He was probably a lock after those games.
