Tomorrow is the 5th day after Subban signed his deal. If he doesn't play, Therrien is an idiot. I can't understand why this is even an issue.
This is a valid point, but to play the devil's advocate, Subban has a few things going against him. He was a holdout, the team has been (for the most part) playing pretty well, we already have 7D called up without Subban so it's not like we need to play an AHLer if Subban doesn't play, and Subban will be matched up against the other team's top players, if he's not at 100% it could be costly. Not to mention that he probably needs a few practices to get comfortable with the system.
