Subban is the real deal and whether people outside of MTL like it not he is only going to get better. He is a beast that has said it more than once that he doesn't just want to be great, he wants to be the best and will do everything he can to achieve his goals.

I hope Chuck goes down to Toronto and trains with him at Laylor systems. If PK can put on 20 lbs of lean muscle in an off season on his frame Chuck can put that on easily with his regiment.

Everyone has different coloured friends, its really a non-issue and it doesn't matter in the NHL either...whoever says black people behave more like NFL or NBA athletes because the NHL is a 'quieter league' is close-minded as **** and makes me feel sorry for them.
So... So wrong.

Try being a minority growing up, you get to see its still there in quite the abundance.

As for the best defenceman category, we could say:

1- Chara
2- Letang
3- Suter
4- Subban
5- Karlsson


I hate Chara and it's an absolute pleasure to see him snap which he tends to do from times to times when one get under his skin (see: Bégin a few years ago ) but he's the full-package.
No. No. Absolutely not. Ask Penguins fans.

Chara mostly gets booed here because he has a habit of trying (or succeeding) to cheapshot our players. I still remember Kovalev having to dodge elbows aimed at his head regularly, chara going bombs away on latendresse etc. As I recall, he was being booed here before he was a perennial Norris candidate.

I started disliking Chara when he hurt Ivanans with a cheap shot:


You can actually make out Ivanans' teeth flying out after the late shot.

I don't disagree, there's been a history established, but this isn't the only rink Chara gets booed in. To me, it's a compliment when opposing fans boo you. It means you're doing something right. Steve Begin never got booed in opposing rinks. Other lesser black players aren't booed in opposing rinks.

He's booed because he's great, flamboyant, got swag and a hab. There's still some racial undertones for some. I don't deny that, but I honestly believe those ignorant folk are minority now.

He's a superstar in the making and everyone knows it.

I really hate Chara. I hate him when he was in Ottawa too. But damn he's effective at what he does.

You have to be delusional to believe Subban is much ahead of him. They have different skillset obviously but they both affect the game positively in their way.

Just imagine a pairing of Chara - Subban for a second. Yeah. On the Powerplay. On the penalty kill. At 5v5. Yeah. Yeah. You get it too now, right?

I hate him, but you have to admit the sole add of him to our blueline make our team instant contender and resolves many if not all of our flaws.

Is he going to endorse the entire Penguins defensive corpse?
