Team Canada thoughts

A few quick thoughts as I'm traveling and internet is scarce, but it is great to finally see PK Subban officially on Team Canada. He's one of, if not the best, Canadian defenceman, and the debate was laughable. Now he'll have a chance to further cement his place as he plays for his country.

As for Carey Price, I see him as the #2 to start the tournament - Luongo has to have a chance to defend his position - but I suspect Price is the guy heading into the medal round.

Otherwise, Carter, Kunitz, and Nash, to me, should have been St. Louis, Neal and Giroux. But hey, these are good problems to have.

Biggest snub: Alex Semin not making Team Russia. Who saw that one coming?

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
