Kind of funny to see people who have been claiming that nothing's wrong with Subban are suddenly uncomfortable with Cole's declarations... No fan should complain about this. Cole is a gritty forward, our best winger this year and a veteran of many seasons in the NHL. Damn right this guy has a right to call out anyone on the team.
We really need to stop defending the kid. He has a lot to learn and he, by all accounts, has some maturity and attitude problems. There's no point in sticking our fingers in our ears. We shouldn't idolize him the way we've been doing; he has yet to accomplish anything in the NHL. We're just sending a contradictory message.
I'll side with the ex-coach and the players who clearly think he needs to change. We should stop cheering whenever Subban touches the puck and treat him like any other player until he learns his place. Frankly, even at his best, he's not even what I'd call the team's franchise player (that's Price), so learning his place is clearly something he needs to do.
