Spott is also going with Binnington now. Cheap shot to Subban IMO. He went with him all tourney and now he turns his back on him. May be the right move but it doesn't sit well with me.

Binnington outplayed Subban in the camp as well as the pre tournament games, and should have been the starter. Subban should feel lucky he was given the reins.

Can't disagree with that, but honestly my gut instinct tells me it wouldn't have made a difference in the outcome which one was in net.

Probably right, and there's obviously no way of knowing, but I still would think they'd have a better chance with the guy who was playing better.

I agree. He should've went with Binnington the whole way, but to yank the guy with one game left after you put all the chips on the table and not even criticizing Subbans game doesn't sit well with me. The coach is all kinds of crazy IMO.

You want him to criticize a high school aged player to the national media? What would that establish?

It belies what happened. He criticized the whole team but the goaltending then yanks him for the bronze game? Its absurd. All he could say is we also needed better goaltending. As far as I know he didn't. If you're going to criticize the effort against the Amerks blame needs to be shared by all, even the goalie.

And that's besides the point. I think its still weird that he would seem confident in Subban after the loss only to turn around and yank him so he doesn't play the final game. He put his chips on the table with this guy instead of a rotation round robin and now Binnington goes in cold. It just smacks me as bad coaching or overconfidence in Subban who had a terrible camp and as many bad gamed as he had good ones.

Binnington gives up a laugher early to the Ruskies.

I wonder if Reilly will see more ice with a dman suspended tonight.

Yakupov 2-0 on the PP.

That one was Subban's fault.

Jenner was in the box on a silly roughing penalty.

Scheifle makes it 3-3 with all the Canadian goals coming off the PP.

Some Russian makes it 4-3.

4-4 headed to the third with the Russians to have a 2 minute PP to start.

Yakupov converts the aforementioned PP and it's 5-4.

5 all with Ritchie the scorer.

Reilly has been given the green light with about ten minutes to go, he shifted the momentum in Canada's direction with some great rushes.

Russia wins it, Murphy is the worst dman I've ever seen.
