    For left shooting D he is the best right now. He will make it easily. Weber and Letang are too old. Girard is small and doesn’t play as many minutes.

    Weber and Letang will most likely make the team. Weber 100%. Team Canada always relies on veterans especially ones who have played for them at the major tournaments. Both are still playing at a high level and bring loads of experience with them.

    He’ll likely make it due to handedness, for some reason most of the Canadian elite dmen shoot right.

    He’s ahead of Chabot, Girard, Theodore, Reilly currently. I agree Makar, Pietrangelo, Ekblad are probably ahead, with Hamilton Letang being at a similar level but Canada’s coach isn’t going to want 6 right handed guys for a dcore. I think it’s extremely likely he makes the team.

    Nurse as your #1 d gets you swept by the Jets in a competitive 4 game series

    Same jets that gets swept in a non competitive 4 game series by the Habs who will lose in the next round

    Schmidt is better than Nurse? Nurse had more goals than Schmidt had points, and it’s not like Schmidt is some defensive stalwart, he along with the other Canucks dmen got caved in this year.

    I’m extremely confident most people would take Nurse over Schmidt

    You’re just proving your opinion is uneducated. Oilers had a lot of problems in the playoffs but Nurse wasn’t it. He played well in the Jets series despite of his partners weak defensive games. He played massive minutes in every game, he was probably the Oilers best player.

    If Canada was smart

    Toews Makar
    Theodore Pulock
    Chychrun Spurgeon
    Ekblad

    But Doughty and Weber somehow makes it on

    Which is a problem. Remaining teams #1 d

    Hedman (nurse is probably better than an injured Hedman)
    Theodore
    Makar
    Pulock/Pelech
    Petry (injured)

    Most gms too. I'd take Nurse over Schmidt as well. Much more value and potential. Talking about a league that will pay Seth Jones at least 8.5m a year.

    Still a valid post because I can see Schmidt excel on the Oilers in that role. Look at Barrie.

    Again these opinions make 0 sense.
    Pulock and Toews don’t have a chance to make team Canada. Spurgeon likely doesn’t even make the team due to the right handed depth in front of him.

    So basically Nurse has 0 chance and doesn't belong on Team Canada then. Those are better dmen

    They aren’t.

    But I’m not going to waste my time trying to convince you of that fact since you seem to have already formulated your opinion.

    I guess McDavid isn’t a 1C.

    McDavid as your 1C gets you swept by the jets.

    McDavid and Draisaitl gets you the opportunity to be swept by the Jets that got swept by the Habs

    Rest of the team is Sabres level

    I admit this season he substantially improved, but I'm also not willing to discount the effect McDavid/Draisaitl had on his scoring. I don't think it's a coincidence that Edmonton had the highest point getting defenceman in Barrie and the 2nd highest goal scoring defenceman in Nurse, neither of whom were particularly close to the top of league scoring any other year.

    Not that I'm saying I have much evidence supporting my position. I just hope they pay Nurse like the top 10 D their fans seem to think he is.

    Nurse has played with McDrai his entire career.. He himself took a big step forward this year

    His 5 on 5 production was very good but it's his defensive game that's mainly made him noticable

    He wasn't better than Theodore this year and hasn't been in the past, and while he was better than Chabot and Rielly this year, they've been better the past couple. There's also Chychurn and Morrissey. Remember when Leaf fans thought Rielly was a team Canada lock after his 72 point season? He's in the mix but I really don't see how he has a leg up on the other top lefties. It'll depend highly on how they do next year.

    I don’t disagree with your last sentence.

    Morrissey is not even close, he’s always been overrated and Trouba leaving really exposed a lot of his faults. Just ask Jets fans how they feel about him right now.

    Chabot and Theodore are certainly ahead of him. Hes probably on par with Girard and Rielly.

    Anyways. He is far from a lock.
