If I were Montreal and had a chance to acquire a full fledged NHL defender, it would be Subban headed to the AHL to make room.
I still believe he'll be good, very good, but he needs to learn to be strong on the puck and clearly isn't getting that hint from the coaching staff, which is troubling.
The reason he is being benched is because he needs to improve on his hockey intellegence and overall team game. Going for those big hits will, more often than not, place you out of position and lead to odd-man rushes against. As well, he is going for too many risky plays that will work in NHL 2K11 but not in the real NHL. He needs to simplify his game and have a greater awareness of where his teammates are on the ice. Is the point covered? If so, can I safely go into the offensive zone to make a play?
