He looks at times like he's not even trying to get to places anymore because he has a hard time skating there. Skating just looks like a serious effort, and I think it's affecting his overall play a lot, and it worsened significantly as the season progressed. There's a reason why he was so efficient in the beginning of the season and it decreased gradually, it's not because he lost his brain power...
Yes, his skating seems to get worse every game. I can't imagine that
he's just getting tired. I fear we will soon hear that he has either knee, groin,
or maybe back problems. If he can play through them okay. But he seems to
be getting worse, and maybe he should play less minutes for a while. Subban
is getting stronger, and can play big minutes if need be.
