Ya, he wouldn't have the space and time to pick up speed as a forward. Most of you would be disappointed with his offensive display at forward I'm sure. Not that he'd be totally ineffective but he wouldn't be able to dazzle as much .
So serious and always so sarcastic, Isn't there a Kovalev thread you should be posting in?
Not sure what's your point there. Couldn't care less about Kovalev, and didn't even want him re-signed.
Sorry if I offended you, not sure why you're reacting like this anyways because you even admitted to knowing you'd get lambasted for your proposition.
My point still stands, it would be idiotic to move the kid up front. He brings so much to your defensive squad, and you're sole argument as to why you want to see him up front is due to his stickhandling. Those are your own words, not mine.
People need to give P.K some time to fully develop into the top tier NHL defensman he can be. People seem to forget that the kid just finished his 2nd pro season. Next year will tell much more of a story.
I know I'm going to get lambasted for this but who cares. I love his stick handling abilities and how many forwards do we have that can do that in the offensive zone. I don't know what else to say about it but the Habs have put their D as forwards many many times..I would just love to see Subban do it for a few games
Hey Jacques Martin, how is getting paid a million or two and not doing anything going for you?
Smh at anyone who ever thought about it. Just look at how bad defensively we were during his ten minute misconduct penalty. Here we have a potential hall of fame defenseman and people want to move him to the right wing!
Sounds good as he always seems to plow up that way ...busts around the net then either makes the pass out front or does whatevah the hell he wants in the "O" zone...freakin LOVE it! imo if he didn't have to rush back into position from said rush he could do a lot more damage in there than one thinks. again it's my opinion.

Subban benefits from the open ice he's afforded as a blueliner. He can make plays and stickhandle in ways that he wouldn't have space to do as a forward.
Nevermind the fact that Montreal desperately needed a great puckmover on the blueline. And a minute eater. And a physical, good skating, shut-down defenseman. And yet we're wanting to sacrifice everything Montreal needs because it might be interesting as a forward.
