both times, MT leaves him on despite changing the forwards (and once he even changed the other dman).
It's that kind of approach Subban needs, and that JM couldn't not understand.
That's exactly it. Martin wanted them to play no risk no reward hockey. Sit back, don't hit, don't score, play defence. Of course it is impossible to win that way.
Subban picks his spots. He loses the puck a few times per game but rarely in a bad spot and it rarely leads to goals. He creates chances when his moves succeed.
I haven't seen people blowing by Emelin for goals as frequently, either.
Martin reminds me of Dilbert's pointy haired boss: "if we cut costs enough we can make a profit without selling any products."
Subban is doing fine. Bouillon was not good last night, or maybe Kaberle was puttin him in tough spots. The habs will be better if Diaz and Bourque get back, and when they bring in a couple of big D-men who can play. Subban is a keeper but everyone else is going to have to fight for spots the next few years.
