It's not the only factor at play of course but there is a certain hostility directed at Subban and Evander Kane (who unlike Subban, genuinely does have some attitude questions, though the treatment is overblown) and the only comparable is how the league treats Russians.

Players who actually do cause trouble in the locker room, and who let their private life get in the way like Patrick Kane and Seguin don't get spoken about the same way Subban does.
Well said!
