Subban is pretty much 100% on the spot in terms of maturity off the ice. On the ice, he needs a little work but it will come. I agree though, I doubt Cole and company see him as a leader just yet. The biggest complaint with subban is the penalties he takes and trying to do too much and being in the middle of things. Cole was asked what he'd say for advice and it was basically not to react to the constant agitation or scrutiny and be professional and let it slide and focus. Subban just needs to let it go a bit and focus on what he can do rather than trying to do too much.
