that's why he was benched.

in my mind, there is not doubt whatsoever that the benching, showed subban what he was doing wrong, and he improved on it. when he came back, he was boss.

this team, no longer has any weak players that can't perform, players that don't have good work ethics, or can't be responsible on the ice. why cry about scrubs like dags or o'b or fatendresse? Skost is doing well. ok, good for him, he was **** here. good riddance.
Yup. Ballsy move by JM to bench him at the time. I remember that dive against Edmonton that cost us the game. He had to be reigned in. I gained a lot of respect for JM after that. And even moreso for PK for how he responded.
