It's like having the Leafs play Kaberle as center on the top forward line.

Add in some of the PP production that a normally-converting PP unit would have and he'd be at a point-per-game clip now, along with having solid defensive credentials. I don't think we could ask for more out of Subban/coach's use of Subban.
Great post BG, your spot on.

Can Subban bring a little more offensively? Yeah he probably could but that would also leave him more open to make mistakes. He's playing SOLID two-way hockey right now.

Even if Subban become a poor man Orr, it will be just amazing !!!

I can see a 20 goal scorer in Subban on his prime for sure of course it is far from Orr but he is not as good as him, just similar style when carrying the puck from both ends of the rink.

The game has changed a lot too, Orr could skate and get back in position because he was faster than most other players. Nowadays 95% of NHLers are probably as fast as he used to be and the difference from the fast guys to the average guys is minimal because of all the training, diet and technology.

Once he gains some hockey sense he will play an even better game.

His hockey sense is fine, he just plays a high risk game at times.

You mean experience? Two different things.

His hockey sense is higher than average to very good right now as a rookie can be.

Seriously, there is NOTHING to fault in the way Subban is being brought into the league. For the first time in more than a decade the Habs have an elite level prospect they are neither rushing nor holding back. So of course, there's got to be a chorus of complaint.

This one gets my vote as the maybe the worst OP I've seen this year. Course the season's young yet.
Thanks for your vote BULL......It`s just my opinion. I really like the way he played for team Canada(Juniors) and I expect to see him play the same way with the habs.Especially on nights when the team is having a hard time scoring. He can and will be a game breaker.

I honestly believe this kid is having a phenomenal beginning to the rookie season. What is it? 6 assists so far and the power play is the sh**s. You bounce some of those posts into the net and he also has 3 or 4 goals as well. Eventually he will be a point per gm player or close to it. Lots of talent there, don't rush it.

Now Tonight he clearly had the green light to go at will. This IS when PK is at his best. He sees the ice soooo well,and set up some sweet plays tonight. KEEP PLAYING YOUR GAME PK ! And please Mr Martin let him continue to play his game.

Mentioning PK's name with Robert Orr is not fair to either player in my opinion.Pk is a fine young player and skates well etc, but Bobby Orr ?

Honestly, don't even mention Orr and Subban in the same breath lol. You will be chastised for that. Maybe similar style is what you mean? Similar ability... common! Orr was the best of the best

You realize Perry Pearn handles the defense, right?

I haven't read the entire thread but I don't think it's a matter of Subban having a green or red light. His ability to rush depends on whether he feels Gill is in a position to cover for him. Because as with Picard I see Subban having to cover for Gill. For one game I'd love to see Picard back in the lineup for Gill especially since Picard now has an apartment in Montreal. LOL Again I know Gill is a great PK'er but honestly this team has quite a few of those guys. I was just surprised with the way Picard hits and he has more of a shot.

I like this point. I makes sense, with Subban's tactical mind, that he wouldn't rush if he believes the risk isn't worth the benefits. With a slow teammate, he can't afford to go too much ahead.

Subban has never had any stop signs, he just needed to keep things simple more often instead of trying to do too much and creating turnovers.

Using Subban on the left side and Markov on the right side during the powerplay is what we need to do all the time....that way each of them are setup for one-timers.

The most amazing thing is Mr.Subban is 21 years old, imagine 6 years from now when he is Duncan Keith's age. What will he be like?

I think people forget all the time because of how amazing he is that he is only 21 years old and is just beginning his career! Simply Insane.

He's a franchise player. If he keeps playing and improving like he's doing right now, we must sign him long-term. We didn't draft a lot of Subban kind of players in the last few decades, let's make sure he stays with us...
