Yes, I would. Because that's what being part of a TEAM means...

...or something.

Now he's a diva??

Was it spending time in Haiti after the earthquake that made him a diva? Or was it starting the charity to help poor families afford hockey equipment that did it? Or was it all the times he visited hospitals to spend time with sick children?

Just trying to nail down when you figure he became a diva.

Hey....are you Michel Bergeron by any chance?

So you would go to work without getting paid? That's interesting, but illogical. And that's not how it works for players of his caliber. He's not a Darche, he doesn't have to fight for his job. Camp has nothing to do with his contract, or lack thereof.

"600% raise" - come on, you know that ELC salaries are artificially low.

He has his spotlight and show dog moments. There's nothing stopping a diva from being a philanthropist and caring for children. I don;t think his attitude is exemplary though. Do you?

The comparisons between Kulikov and Subban are false.

Dimitry Kulikov averaged 17:58 ES TOI/G, 2:50 PP TOI/G and 1:02 SH TOI/G last year.
PK Subban averaged 18:11 TOI/G, 3:29 PP TOI/G, and 2:36 SH TOI/G last year.

The main difference in their ice time was on the penalty kill. PK Subban indeed got more ice time than Kulikov, but that's because of his elite shutdown skills, not because he is given more offensive opportunities.

Moreover, in 5on5 play, Subban had a Corsi QoC of +0.903 (incredibly high) and only began 46.3% of his shifts in the offensive zone, whereas he ended 50% of his shifts there. Kulikov, meanwhile, had relatively babied minutes, with a Corsi QoC of +0.103, beginning 45.9% of his starts in the offensive zone and ending 47.0% of his shifts there.

Yes, his charity work and general demeanor off ice has been quite exemplary. He carries himself well, interacts with fans, speaks intelligently and doesn't break any off ice rules.

Why do you call him a diva exactly? Do you know him? Does he request all the red m&m's removed from the candy bowl at the Molson Centre?

That's the CBA. Ultimately his take home will be 600% higher and its a very nice raise.

I can't stand the people who want hockey players to be boring.

What is the matter with you? Do you think "I want to give 110%" is more interesting than volounteering in Haiti?

Fine, you are right. His aptitude is exemplary on and off the ice. Every player that says otherwise from any other team is wrong. Any non-player that think he's showboating is also wrong.

Is it his incredible microstats that you have issues with? His really strong strength of opposition, combined with low offensive zone starts? Is it his remarkable +- on a really bad team? Is it his insane amount of ice time, facing #1 lines on ES, playing a ton of PP and PK (doing great on both assignments) that you have an issue with? Is it his decent production for a 22 year old on the worst team in the East that bugs you?

I'm still wondering where this diva comment comes from. Seems to me you are creating straw man arguments, trying to denigrate him without having much substance.

Yes, that is the CBA. Talented players make much, much less than market value during their first 3 years as pros, and then their salaries jump in their second contracts. Using numbers like "600%" for shock value is disingenuous.

Oh Christ.

What did he do to them? Taunt them, call them names? Celebrate and rub their noses in it?

Well, that's certainly very serious: we need to talk about what this "boy" is doing to "our" game.

Showboating?

Just wondering, did you smile when Eric Cole gave a high-five to the ref after scoring his natural hat-trick, or did you think he was showboating and "out of his place" ??

And yes his attitude is exemplary. He keeps in excellent shape and he volounteers. I have no complaints.

Sure, not on every team, but on some, if not many, but most importantly, he is/was on ours.
You just can't have guys like Kaberle or Gorges make more, you can't.

OK, I'll drop the attitude issue. What do you think hes worth then, realistically. Many of you seem to argue with me but I would like to know the max you would pay him right now.

If a person agrees with Bergevin's stance of giving PK a short term bridge contract does that make them a Subban hater in your opinion?
