Subban behind Boyle and Letang for Team Canada

Just thought people would like to know that TSN had another discussion tonight about the projected Team Canada team at the olympics, and according to Dreger, Subban is too high risk of a player for the team, and that he's behind Dan Boyle and Kris Letang on the depth chart. If anyone wants to check out the video its on the TSN homepage.

Dan Boyle has really regressed, he was great a couple of years ago but he's even lost some of his speed now. I doubt he's ahead of anybody for Team Canada. Honestly even his teammate Vlasic is a ahead of him.

Dreger is a clown. Boyle is too old.

How is Letang not risky ?

Is this a joke? I know Dreger is but how in the hell is Subban a risk and they want Letang and Boyle before him?

If Subban played for the Leafs he'd be talked about as the most important D for team Canada. They're a little biased over there lol. IMO he should be in the top 4 for team Canada right now.

Subban is ahead of Boyle at a minimum... Letang probably, too.

I was honestly waiting for them to say Dion Phaneuf is ahead of PK on the depth chart

Ugh, Subban has always been under-rated by team Canada for some reason. I seriously don't get, he just won a Norris and he is getting placed behind a guy who has like 3 years left to his career. This is maddening.

It's often bad press when you're talking about TSN, whenever they talk about Subban for team Canada they always have to bring the "P.k is a defensive liability" BS. If only he was a Leafs player, maybe then Dreger would be a fan.

I can't see how you can say he is always underrated by team Canada as this is basically his first time really being deserving.

As is, these are media people 10 games into the season. They just talking to create some entertainment. Who really cares

Lebrun also said Vlasic is ahead of him.....but LOL Boyle? Look at his stats + that recent concussion... they are trolling at this point.


Team Canada want Subban for the PP, other countries will be forced to respect his shot and that open up ice for Crosby and co.

Also Subban skate better and hes stronger.

Boyle should not even be on Team Canada's short list let alone in the same conversation as Letang and Subban.

Subban has shown he can play a "safer" game when needed.

The selfish Habs fan in me would rather seehim have a 2 week break instead.

Boyle is getting old and would be burned by the wider rinks used by the Euros. But if they really think that, it just means Americans like myself will be watching a weaker Team Canada in the Olympics.

Vlasic is a solid guy, but not a guy that belongs on Team Canada, not with guys like Subban Letang Weber Pietrangelo Keith Seabrook and Doughty, you can't NOT take any of those 7.

Told you so. He will be 8th at best. What we see is not what the coaches see.

Olympics on international ice?

Canada will be sure to include a guy who doesn't deserve to be there because of 'chemistry' and somebody else because he's a 'protypical shutdown forward'.

How is Letang less "high risk" than Subban? He's worse defensively and has less experience on the big ice surface. Ridiculous.

Maybe Putin's the one with the issue....

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Subban gets left off.
I mean Crosby and Stamkos were left off the last 2 respectively.

Two weeks ago Subban as a lock for team Canada, today he's not based on how he's being used on his own team.

I personally think Subban is top-4 team Canada.

The only issue going against him is MT not using him as much on the PK.

Dreger should be labeled a speculator rather than an insider.

PK will be there. He was born to play on the big ice and Hockey Canada likes him. He was a longshot to make the Team Canada WJC team as an 18 year old but still did. He'll be in Sochi.

It would be interesting to see him make the national team and be effective in precisely that role under some other coach. I can see him being extremely motivated to do just that and expose Therrien as a charlatan.
