Kind of ironic that his name is PK... not where he belongs at all!
Subban was way better defensively in the tourney than Hickey IMO.

Absolutely. Subban is a little bit underated imo. The guy did two turnovers in a game and everyone complained about how he's a liability on the ice... But what about the other D on this team, they all did worse than Subban and nobody complained. Subban is definately a great prosepct and he's underrated.

As for the poll, I gotta go with LA because Emelin is a question mark.

I'll agree with you that Subban was way better than Hickey. He looked very off this tourney. Hiding an injury maybe? But no way no how would I say that Subban looked good defensively out there. Not to mention he was pretty undisciplined as well throughout. Hey, he's a very exciting player to watch but he's not very solid on the defensive side of his game at this point.

Also I don't think Subban is underrated. He won't be after this tourney anyway. And he certianly isn't underrated by habs fans. That's for sure!

Undisciplined? He took two penalities from what I can recall, one was extremely marginal while the other was an unfortunate trip.

Sorry I didn't mean just penalties. I should have been more clear. I also meant taking himself out of position in order to pinch etc, etc... stuff like that.
