If you can't appreciate that kind of skill at 22 years old, so be it. Similar to how I can't describe what a beautiful sunset looks like to a blind person, I certainly won't try to describe Subban's play for those who can't see it in here neither.
Its not about appreciating the skill. I've seen the skill. I've also seen blind turnovers under zero pressure, and pinches at very strange times of the game. In a market like montreal, you have to learn how to simplify when things are going bad, or you will just end up making things worse, and I hope he learns that eventually. Subban is not ready for the role he's been pushed into.... so its not all his fault, but sorry, he has been bad.
