Correctly, if I'm wrong ...BUT I seem to recall seeing a few highlites...Didn't Subban get called up briefly for Habs last year?...& didn't he try his patented Spinorama?...Which everyone and his little brother insists wont work on NHLers...and didn't it work to perfection?...a la WJ's
Why are you basing your opinion entirely on the WJC? Some players shine there, others don't. It's a 6 game tourney, not that important when judging a player. And Erik Karlsson was the defenseman of the tourney not Subban but let's not bring him into this discussion again

No record of him playing in the NHL or even the AHL for that matter. And I would love to see him try that spinorama on a seasoned NHL veteran defenseman, take the body is stamped onto every thought in their mind. Poor PK wouldn't know what hit him.
