But really, point is that Subban and Sergei are in no way comparable!
I think the Habs are one of the worst at handling their young players. Look at how Pittsburgh took care of Crosby.
The list of ex-Habs who were traded/let go at a young age is long.
Maybe some are headcases but most are probably not old enough to be on their own with all that disposable income. They need to be counselled by professionals and billeted with either older players or mgmt.
