    I still would not resign him with so many young players knocking on the door

    Therrien mentions Subban in connection with the Olympics.

    http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=437740

    He really had no choice after waht he said regrading Pricer, but it's nice to see he's starting to feel Subban is playing up to his standards. Can only mean good things for the Habs when PK is on the ice more.

    For all the people who didn't see it from the beginning, he's being on hard on PK because he knew he can get better performances from him.

    He's up to Therrien's standards and he is getting rewarded. Simple as that.

    No need to look more into it.

    I could buy this except for how he didn't play him at critical moments in the playoffs. Made no sense.

    Yeah... but I think it's mostly what I wrote a bit earlier.
    Maybe there were other minor issues, but that has to be the biggest thing.
    Hopefully.

    I didn't see any quote regarding Price?

    Basically... I love Subban though. I remember his first game in the NHL - he's been one of, if not my favourite players since then. He's been my favourite player since about grade 11... so about 3.5 years now. Couture is a close second though.

    A week or so ago he made a comment about how Price will be on TC. This was shortly after saying he doesn't talk aboiut Olympics for his players regarding a question about Subban.

    He's flippity flopped a couple times on this subject.

    Subban says he’s constantly trying to improve and he uses Markov as a role model.

    “This year marks the first I’ve taken a day off when we’ve had an optional skate and I’ve been banged up,†Subban said. “I never did that in the past because Marky never took a day off.â€

    I think the title nares to change now. That was ages ago before PK distanced himself from the competition and was a virtual lock to make the team.

    Don't see any scenario where PK isn't in Sochi, barring injury, at this point. He's easily been one of the best defencemen in the nfhknthis year, much less Canada.

    Price starter, PK in the top 4 pairing. Go Canada Go!

    ****ing right.
    Definitely. It's a ****ing joke to think that there's a GM out there who thinks PK Subban is behind Letang and/or Boyle. A ****ing stinking joke. Boyle and Letang are a huge pile of smelly **** compared to PK Subban (especially Letang...he is a HUGE ZERO when it comes to Defense 101, and I thought Mike Green was terrible at defense...Letang is almost as bad as Green...they're both forwards...PK Subban can shadow Crosby...Letang and Green can't contain Crosby for their lives).



    The real question is...will PK Subban be Canada's no.1 dman?
    (he is to me...the day he contained Crosby in 2010 playoffs with ZERO playoff experience is the day I knew he was a MEGA SUPERSTAR).


    GO PK Subban GO!! (**** all the doubters/haters).
