A lot of people still saw Subban as young and raw and just wanted to see a little more before inking him long term. While they were ultimately wrong, it has nothing to do with personally disrespecting the PK.
But again, they don't seem to need to see a little more with Desharnais or Emelin, say. Too many things together. It's obvious to me that management and coaching don't appreciate Subban to the extent that I do. I'm just a fan. But I can only have my own perspective. I think they're wrong. I hope they're not correct - that doesn't help us either. And I hope that it won't - yet fear that it will - hurt our team at some point, in some way.
