P.K is already one of the best young D's in the league and his career ceilling is to be one of the best Dman in the NHL one day, IMHO.

Considering he's one of the only black players in the NHL who is aspiring to be an All-Star, I do believe it can stimulate a rise of popularity in hockey to black kids around the world. He's the only one who in my opinion who is shaping up to be a role model in the black community.
A player's effectiveness as a league-wide marketing tool seems to depend heavily on his on-ice performance. Then again, Subban has a charisma that neither Crosby nor Price have. That being said, he only needs to reach that ceiling to be able to supplant Crosby/Ovechkin as the main marketing tools of the NHL.
