That's Hockey has selected 31 options for your consideration this summer. They are matched up in a head-to-head single elimination bracket style tournament and it's up to you to crown the champ.

On That's Hockey, we'll roll out the day's match-up and our two panellists will debate and make the case for the player they would select. You can then cast your vote on TSN.ca and the results will be revealed on the next episode of That's Hockey before the next match.

For an added element of surprise, as the TSN Quizmaster is watching and can veto your final vote - once in Round 1, once and Round 2 and a single Round 3 challenge which would trigger a re-vote.

Carey Price

P.K. Subban

Defenceman - Montreal Canadiens

The Latest Showdown

It's a choice few Canadiens fans ever want to make. Which one player would you build your franchise around - Carey Price or P.K. Subban?

Price found another gear in the 2013-14 season. The fifth-overall pick in 2005 fought injuries and carried the Canadiens to a 100-point season. He would step it up again in the playoffs, leading the Habs past Steven Stamkos' Tampa Bay Lightning and the hated Bruins. Injuries would force him out of the Conference Final, however, where his Habs would bow out to the New York Rangers. His finest moments, however, may have come in Russia as Price was nearly unbeatable in leading Canada to Olympic gold in Sochi.

The 25-year-old Subban followed up his 2013 Norris Trophy campaign by setting a career-high in points (53). Subban is one of the league's most potent weapons on the blue line and possesses a knack for scoring huge goals, evidenced by his Game 1 double-OT winner that started the Canadiens on their way to a second-round upset of the Bruins. Subban was also a part of Canada's gold medal effort at the 2014 Sochi Games.
