...although I bet he'd look better if they played him on his usual side.
He was a fine signing and his play this season has not changed my mind. And people who think Subban can step in and replace him immediately are crazy. He'll get there, but he needs to cut his teeth on softer minutes for a year or two first. Eating first-pairing minutes is not a trivial task.
