P.K. Subban says he’ll 'never' protest during national anthem

This doesn't surprise me.  Hockey players are probably the most invested in their nations.  Maybe soccer ranks high also.  But for hockey players, from the low levels, to the World Juniors to the World Championships, it's an honor to be selected and represent your country.  And unlike baseball and basketball, they don't usually decline unless they are hurt.  

Plus, when a mic goes out in Canada, and the fans sing the American national anthem better than most Americans can.  That shows a lot of respect and pride.

i appreciate his sentiments even though he's a canadien. even more, i like what the preds CEO had to say:

Said CEO Sean Henry, to the Tennessean:

 

“When this all came about, we wanted to get together with our team because everything we do is collaborative. When we say what we’re going to be doing, it really is a ‘we.’ Everyone had input on it. We are honoring the anthem and the flag and the country by standing during the anthem. We invite our fans to do so with us. “It is also our way of honoring what else it stands for, and it does provide for the freedom for others to express their views and protests in a manner in which they feel comfortable doing. We just think there’s proper forums for all. Our games have become this unifying celebration, so we have decided that we’re all going to stand together to honor the country and all that comes with it.”
