We'll agree to disagree. I've seen Subban get people off their games, but as often, the way he accomplishes this is by getting himself and his teammates off theirs as well.

Take two weeks ago. Pittsburgh has a big lead. Montreal gets a couple goals to close the distance. Instead of contributing to this possible comeback, Subban gets himself ejected by punching some guy who was minding his own business for absolutely no reason. Shortly after, Pittsburgh scores again, killing the idea of a comeback dead in its tracks.

You ask me, Subban's at his best when he's using his considerable strength and wheels to collect and advance the puck...and his bomb of a shot to make life difficult for goaltenders. When he's clowning around, he isn't doing any of that.
