So sad seeing Jmac's list of the top 60 players from Canada and not a single one of them play on the Canucks. Also, not sure how but you left McDavid off Team Eastern Canada.

Perhaps... But I would be so hyped for it, and I'm sure many others too.

If I have to be completely honest, Canada completely dominating is starting to get boring. Like did anyone here honestly even thought Canada wouldn't win this tournament? Same goes for Olympics?

The only thing interesting about this competition was the fact maybe Team NA would have been able to play against Canada, but too bad that didn't happen.

It was really more to demonstrate the amount of depth Eastern Canada would have relative to Western Canada, especially at forward (guys like McDavid, Duchene, MacKinnon, etc. didn't crack the top 18 amongst Eastern Canadian forwards last season and they'd likely be strong contenders for spots).

Western Canada is clearly superior when it comes to goaltending and is probably about even on the blueline.

Dumbest trade by benning. But then again, I don't thnink he like the size in Forsling...makes me doubt the chances of subban ever making the team.

Either way. He traded a good young prospect for a guy who is going to be a career minor leaguer. All because he wanted to "fill the holes" between the veterans and the prospects.

Sometimes you just have to stand pat and be focused on the end goal.

Subban sent back to Utica
After ONE pre-season game



The writing's on the wall, i think he's pretty much traded at this point.

There's so many defensemen, Subban we can probably send him down and not worry about him bolting to the K.

Subban could probably use one more year in Utica. Nothing wrong with that. No need to rush. Pedan and Tryamkin have the edge over him this year in making the team.

I don't disagree with both points but 1 pre-season game and so-so young-stars tourney?
I think he warrants at least 3 or 4 more pre-season games to see how he does against NHLers.

Looking forward to seeing Juolevi, Stecher and Hutton-Gudbranson tonight.

I thought we traded for him because Bieksa and whole bunch of vets were injured at that time?

Playoffs!!! remember...

We could've had Subban, Forsling, and Hicketts in our system (pretty good chance at least one of them turns into an NHL dman/PP QB) and, instead, we ended up with Subban, a couple months of Clendening, and Mackenze Stewart (who couldn't even stick in the ECHL as a 20/21-year-old).

As for Subban, would be nice if they'd give him a longer look in pre-season (this is the 2nd year in a row where he was the first cut), but I ultimately agree with sending waiver-exempt players to the minors unless they're elite players.

Lol these forward lines tho, McDavid vs:

It's like the coaching staff is intentionally giving up offensive chances to really test the D.
