Subban was impressed by "the Rocket "

great article about Subban in LaPresse ; He said that he just saw the movie "The Rocket" lately , and that he didn't know that the Quebecers was loving him that big .

He said that he will give his blood for the Habs if ever he plays with them . His coach is very happy about him .

I will let someone better in english traduce the article

Sorry, wasn't trying to embarrass you, but I didn't see a link and I was trying to get the gist of the story.

A couple people I know are close to the OHL (long time OHL scout, billet and Generals season ticket holder) and they tell me as OHl regs that Subban has little chance for the NHL.

I've never seen him live I have no comeback for that, but for what I've read here.

On positive attitude he's a champ though.

Well...I think he's gonna be an effective 2nd-3rd pairing in the NHL one day.

He's built like a tank, he's got speed, great offensive instinct, hard shot, he can rush the puck like a forward.

I don't think he's gonna be a 1st pairing, but a PP specialist for sure. Don't forget, for the first time this season, he played against 1st line each night..something he didn't do last year. And guess what ? He's better than what the coach thought.

I think he's in the mold of Campbell, Liles or Rafalski which mean small d-men with tremendous offensive instincts but not that excellent in defensive (except Rafalski). He has the character too! It seems that his kid only wants to get better and better..so with that package of skills, passion, work ethic and size...I can't see any reason why he wouldn't play in the NHL.

Wow those people are wrong. Hes as fast as you find them. Strong offensive vision. Great shot as we saw last night.

Defense can be taught and its not like hes brutal on defense. He needs some work..but its definetly fixable.

His attitude and leadership..well they dont need to be fixed.

I've seen him quite a bit. especially this week in the Memorial Cup

Gens fans are not too happy with the Bulls after the 11 to 0 pasting to end their year, so caveat emptor (buyer beware) on their comments

He just turned 19 this week. Good skater and a really good spin move. Good shot. Great attitude. He is the top D scorer in the OHL playoffs this year so he is doing something right

He may never be a star, but in my opinion saying that he has little chance for the NHL is off the mark.

He needs some work his defensive end work but he isn't bad either. I think playing another year in Jr takes him up a level. Watch him play Friday in the Memorial Cup semi-final against the Rangers and judge for yourself

Yeah..Generals fans typically hate Subban as they booed him whenever he touched the puck.

Subban is pretty good. He's still quite raw, but you see he's got a whole lot better since last year. He isnt the same guy on defense, well he's on defense while he wasnt, that's huge and he's pretty effective there. Positionning is an issue, but it is for every offensive defencemen not selected in the top 5. Hell people didnt even know if Phaneuf could addapt to the NHL because his positioning wa sso bad and he was only looking for big hits. He's even better in the NHL. I'm not saying Subban is Phaneuf.

Also on the website there's a french interview with Weber on video. I thought he was perfectly trilingual as he's born in the french part of Switzerland, but he's still really good at it and if he makes it to the habs it'll only get better.

Quick translation

Pk watched the movie the Rocket and loved it,he said he realised how much Richard was important for the French Canadians, he says " The scene when he gets hit and falls on the ice, with blood all over him, get stitches and come back to score the winning goal while he had a commotion....Just seeing such a passion for hockey, is the root of what means wearing a habs jersey. I know that one day, if I get the chance, I ll bleed and sweat for this team.
TT came to my home before the draft and he saw all pictures of Maurice and Henri Richard, pictures of my father with Jean Beliveau, he saw we werent kidding"


Then they say Pk became a more complete player this year helping the Bulls reaching the 100 points for the first time.

Burnett, his coach said at the beginning of the year he was trying to protect him, trying to not make him play against the best players but then prooved he was able to do the job by being as good offensively as defensively. His coach says his play is as good with the puck as it is without.
"He s always ready to work and train hard, doing what he has to do to improve, we always have to insist for him to leave the ice, he spends a lot of time preparing himself, on and off the ice. He has a nice personality and doesnt cut corners, it s guy like him you want in your team"

They then say he got a tying goal and an assist in his last game that ended in OT.
Says he was happy to be part of the WJC at only 18, says hegot to see the best playing, he learned a lot of like how to prepare yourself before a game.

I wont even try to translate that part where they say he looks like Larry Robinson when he staking the puck at the blue line and try to deke everyone.


Sorry for the bad grammar or...wording?

Thanks for the translation and don't worry about the grammar/wording, I can understand everything you wrote, even if it may not be perfect, but thats the main thing.

Thanks again for doing the work.

I'm sure proud blacks aware of their history would see a lot of virtue in the Rocket's story.

Little known fact: Rocket and Jackie Robinson considered each other friends. Rocket went to Robinson's funeral.

PK will undoubtably we an NHL player. Most probably an impact player. I think he is a good example of Brent Burns who was rather raw and needed work to become a solid defenseman. But now he is a candidate for team Canada.

I wouldn't complain if he followed Burns' development curve.... that guy is awesome.

Woah I wish! To be honest, I'm utterly surprised at how well Burns has turned out. first I thought he was picked WAY too early, then I thought he was rushed WAY too quickly, then I thought he'd just be a decent second-pairing guy and now I'm eating some black birds.

I think it is easier to teach someone defence than offence

I think a better way of putting it is that you cannont teach talent and determination, but you can teach fundamentals. Subban has the talent and determination and just needs some work on the fundamentals of the game.

Don't want to take anything away from PK, but wasn't Burns drafted as a forward?

thanks Phil, I didn't know that. From what I've read of both in terms of character, they had a lot in common. They both had a chip on thier shoulders that fueled their careers.

2 Pro scouts said that about Paul Coffey It seems the Habs chose wickenheiser instead that year Subban is reminscent of Paul (not saying he will be but man oh man can he skate)

Yeah... It's been a long process for Burns, but i always liked him. I thought he would be really good, but in the last few years i had some doubts on him as i couldnt see him alo maybe 4-5 times a year and his stats werent overly impressive, he made some big stride since.

Don't know who these people you know are but I am sure not only will he make the NHL but he will be a pretty decent player.

The guy skates like Pavel Bure, its like he has jets for skates! Hes already top notch offensively and ok defensively. He could be something very special with time. These people saying he wouldnt be a NHLer are just haters who wished they'd draft him. Its something else to watch him go end to end with the puck. When all is said and done he could be 6'1 210lbs and be a monster on the ice and be the first marketable black star in this league (no offense to Iginla and Fuhr). Endorsments would come in bunches...
