I believe it was a mistake for the coaching staff to give Subban the starters job for all round robin games. They shoud have went with a platoon for the first four games. Especially since Bennington looked better in exhibition play.

So is there a reason why McKinnon is getting less minutes than the other 2 centers like Strome and Danault/McNeil ? Because those guys haven't don't squat, this team lacks sufficient secondary scoring and we have one of pur most explosive talents in the 4th line, don't give me the center depth excuse because Schiefle and other centers are playing on the wings.

Hes capable of playing wing and is looking like the 13th forward when everyone is back in the line up. I would rather have Mackinnon playing up there but it always seems team Canada does stupid things like that

say for some odd reason the canadians got forced to a shootout (unlikely) but who do you think they'd choose? id say rnh, huberdeau, drouin

We're gonna be short forwards for Sunday. No Jenner, no Lipon and most likely no Camara, unless these disciplinary people come to their senses and see that Camara's hit was clean.

Absolutely no idea why he has been parked on the bench while those guys are getting out two and three times between 30 second shifts for MacKinnon. Sure enough, put him out there with Drouin for a try and they were cycling against Slovakia at will.

Subban is not losing the net unless he has a game where he lets in everything.

If Cammarra gets suspended, put Murphy on the wing!

I don't get why he's a defenceman in the first place. One would think as he was growing up one of his coaches would have been like "hmm you are an exceptional offensive tool but have zero defensive ability......maybe I'll move you to the wing."

Baffles me really

not confident about Subban once we play Russia or US. He is nervous every game. Can't have those slow start excuses once it matters.

Frankie Corrado would have made this d-corps much better. Corrado >>> Murphy and it's not even close.

No hearing for Camara, just Lipon! That is some good news anyway so far. IIHF said clean hit.

So no points for Murphy so far, hasnt generated many chances on the PP even and his bad defensive play got him benched against Slovakia today in the first. I was just a hater though leading up to the tourney. Murphy has done nothing to prove me wrong.

Who really wanst to see him out there with Grigorenko, Yakupov or Galchenyuk flying downt he wing?

What a big surprise, Drouin and Mackinnon get on the ice together and they absolutely control the puck down low and create momentum for the team. What a shock the two best players on the best team on the country who have played together for over a year play well together.

He's referring to the Mooseheads not Team Canada.
