when they were sparring I got the idea that's what he was telling PK. It's so unwarranted. It's not cockyness at all. They just don't like getting schooled by a rookie. As I mentioned in another thread, I am worried about PK, but if anyone tries to go after him intentionally, that's just an example of a coward with an inferiority complex. As good of a player richards is (and bad), he's a ****** and tonight his frustration (shoving AK) boiled over cuz he couldn't take it. If that comment is true, WHAT A LOSER...he's officially become Cherry's pet.
That statement show how much pressure P.K. has on his shoulder, not only he is playing in the hockey city where there is ton of pressure fro both the medias and fans but other teams will try everything they can to break him.. But Im not worried, if someone can take it its Subban!! I hope Subban fight Richards next game and destroy his ugly face.. That would a huge on ice statement to every players in the league..
Something might happen to Subban... Then again Mr Richards, something might happen to you and your team. I'm not saying I'll do it. But seeing how People in Montreal react over things regarding hockey, somebody's bound to do something if you keep gooning up like you just did.
Like any young player, they need to learn where to pick their spots in the offensive zone, when going for a big hit or just talking. It's not to say I want Subban to tone it down as I love the energy he brings to the team. This guy's fearless, charismatic attitude(along with skillset obviously) in a market like montreal might end up legendary but you wonder if Pk tries to do too much. He's a multi-dimensional force out there and wants to be involved in every play which is amazing, but I hope he doesn't get his hands full. Unfortunately, many players have been targetted for less. I feel bad(well, not really bad) if a guy ever ends Subban or Price's career. I'm sure some habs fan with some screws loose will terrorize the guy lol
The Flyers looked like a bunch of spoiled overachieving goons tonight.
That's all they are. Shrimps like Giroux even act like it. Don't believe me? Joel Bouchard between the benches tonight mentioned how he told ALL of Montreal's bench to not hit his hands while he wasn't wearing is gloves. Habs were like"WTF dude?" That's the Flyers for you.
Without knowing it, Richards just gave us a 100% insurance nothing is going to happen to Subban Monday night. Or else, the league will know it was premiditated, and the consequences will be twice as big as it would've been initially.
That being said, I would like to see Subban knock him out with his fists. Fair, square-off fight between those two would probably end up in something interesting. Subban is not to be underestimated. Kid's a monster physically and doesn't look like he's afraid from eating a punch in the face, if it means you can throw 2 others.
Subban isn't looking for the attention, the other teams are giving him the attention...there is a difference and Richards should look in the mirror, he came into the league the same way.
I find that hard to believe. Subban is obviously running his mouth on the ice.
We don't hear anything that is said on the ice, so it's tough to know.
But if you played sports, then you know trash talking is constantly present and with the way people react to Subban, I'm convinced this guy is a pest.
It's not like it's the first time, it seems every team we play against love to take runs at PK, so he must be doing something to deserve such treatment especially at such a young age, and I doubt it's only because he swirls around a lot.
Okay my question is, why does Richards even say this in the first place? Not because he's coming across as a whiny ***** but because PK Subban has been killing the Flyers since he entered the league.
In his first two games he had I believe an assist in each? It was a back to back where he was our best defenseman and player in both games and logged 20+ mins avg.
Then in the playoffs he had 4 points in 5 games (for the philly series) when the team scored a grand total of 7 goals and he was laregly responsible for the team's only win when the series was basically unwinnable and we should of went out in 4, imo.
Richards should show some freaking respect and get used to being owned by PK.
