Ask most elite NHL players who are in contention for their Olympic teams about their candidacy and they’ll likely say they will just play their game and let things take care of themselves.

Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. Subban is doing that pretty well.

It would seem a bit of a stretch that the reigning Norris Trophy winner would be anything less than one of the top eight defencemen for his country, but that is apparently the situation confronting Subban.

Recent chatter about Team Canada’s potential depth chart has Subban fighting for his life, if you listen to some.
