Yes, I mentioned a bunch of things in another post that shows the disrespect he showed to his teammates, coaches and management. Would you like to pretend those things never happened?

Yes, I guess? I mean, I never said he was the devil and that he was bad all the time. The dude's a professional athlete, I hope he does things to help make him better.

Amazing what can happen when you're out to prove something. Motivation is a great thing, and not many people have it at the professional level. The kids ego got in his way in Montreal, and he became complacent. Good for him that he worked his butt off in Nashville. I'm happy for him as he is one of my favorite players in the world. And Kudos to Trotz, who may be the best coach in the world, for working with him.

No. Sean Avery is Sean Avery. People grow up at their own pace. Sergei is not a bad person (at least that's not what I'm saying) he was just a spoiled rich kid with a ton of talent and a huge ego! No room for ego when building an organization.

So was that Dubes' opinion? Was Martin or the goalie coach yelling at him? Help me please, because I don't see the similarities. No one can question Prices attitude so...

At training camp? Sheesh, you'd better have a good reason. What was his again?

Sorry that you feel that way, but them's the breaks. Your only option as an organization in that situation is to a)send player down to teach him a lesson and light a fire (We tried) b)Have teammates, management try and talk sense into said player (We tried) c) Let player rot in KHL(excuse term "rot", I <3 KHL) (We're better than that) d) Trade player for best you can get (We tried).

Enlightened yet? But really, point is that Subban and Sergei are in no way comparable!
