He isn't judged by the same benchmark as most athletes. It's completely unfair, and he will never escape it. The only way he can arise and become greater than they can ever dare to criticize. He has to become a shining player in the NHL, so radiant everybody is left with no choice but choke on their own words.

Thing is, Subban can pull it off. You can easily point out to the greats of today; Crosby and McKinnon, and claim they had it handed over to them by everyone. Nobody can ever claim Subban would have had it easy.

But Subban can pull it off. I know he can, and I know he will. He will be remembered as One of the Greats. If management pulls off a good team around him, we'll win enough cups to have his jersey retired and a bronze statue of him alongside the other Greats.
I think you might be right. I see him going down as one of the greats.
