Subban says Giroux should be on Team Canada

P.K. Subban was congratulated by Claude Giroux for making the Canadian Olympic team, after which Subban responded by saying Giroux should be there as well. Of course, the instant reaction from the internet seems to be that of outrage, because Subban dared to say anything at all. In reality Subban responded in kind to another very skilled player, who could easily have made the team over guys like Kunitz, Sharp, and Nash.

HOTH: WJC showing hope for Panthers

From Scott Lewis: With 38 points and a seat in last place in the Southeast Division, the Panthers are where most could have predicted they’d be in January. They’ve got an elite goaltender to go along with a mix of serviceable-to-fading veterans and a quality group of youth and mid-age players. Hockey has never been an easy sell in South Florida, but if the 2011 World Juniors have signified anything for the Panthers – it’s that they’re on the right track in terms of prospects. More above. Thanks to The Copper and Blue's Derek Zona for the link.

Link: Howden's story one of outstanding perseverence

From Jeremy Sandler, The StarPhoenix: What might be a surprise is that (Florida 2010 first-rounder Quinton Howden) is on the ice at all. As a six-year-old, doctors wondered whether he would be able to get upright on his own after a terrible accident on his tricycle. "Yeah, I don't know how they looked at it, telling me I wouldn't play hockey again, let alone probably walk," he said. "It's something that I've overcome and something that has driven me my whole life." My own fault on this being linked so late; huge thanks to Cory B. for the submission.

Ray Whitney named Captain of Team Canada for IIHF World Cup.

"He's clearly a guy from our observation that the guys have gravitated to," said Coach Craig MacTavish. "Like I said the other day, (it's important to) have the perspective. He can frame things the right way at crucial times because of those experiences that he's had...We felt like he was the guy." Also, TSN has this video talking with Ray about his role as Team Nanny. Same old Ray.
