These are two of the best young black players that can potentially be used for marketing. Who has the more potential to be marketed league-wide?
Assume these two players will not be traded, will not hit free agency and will never change positions.
When you put it that way it carries a connotation that one would intend to exploit either of these two because of their race. If either person would come to their marketing departments and say, "hey I want to help and I could reach out to certain people because of how I would be able to relate to me" it would go over better.
For example Wayne Simmonds, as seen on 24/7, volunteers to help out inner city kids who want to play hockey. If the Flyers org pushed him to do so specifically because he is black, can'o'worms.
Why wouldn't they just combine Subban's hits and his skating prowess with that of Simmond's hits and ferocity ?
Do a thing where Simmonds goes in, drills someone, gets the puck and passes it off, then it cuts to Subban on a rush with his great skating, deking a few people before passing off to Kane who rips it home with a great wrister.
