Officially loved by his team, but hated around the league...

Glad to see he is driven...

One thing is clear from the interview. He wants to start and end his career as a Habs.

Rhymes with "DA Smock".

Spezza's the only guy they have though. I'd rather have Montreal's forwards than Ottawa's.

Folks, Subban is going to be making elite money on his next contract at that means 7.5 and above. That's the cost of a top 5 defenseman in the league.

And that's fine, he deserves it the way he has been playing

By then Gionta will be gone and Markov won't be making that much if they decide to keep him, PK will get that money!

I have no issue with it either as long as he continues playing as he is now. But lets forget the fantasy of 6 or 6,5 million dollar cap hits. That's not real talk anymore.

EDIT: might have been possible on a 15 year frontloaded contract.

No, MTL didn't give that contract. What I meant was that Price's contract is the highest the team has ever given.

Yup, broke a bone in his leg.

Either you risk breaking your leg, or you let his blasts through. Tough choice for opposing players.

We must have been watching a different feed, but I clearly saw Myers blocking a Subban blast.

We're paying through the nose anyway.

Might as well have an award to show for it right?

He was blocking Subban all night long. I kept wondering if he was going to get hurt. Props to Myers for having the guts to keep doing this.

He blocked two during the 5 on 3. He didn't leave the game though, probably didn't want to take his skate off, because it would have swollen to a massive size.

I can't remember any other incidents involving Myers that could have broken the bone in his leg.

pretty sure i saw myers block a subban shot VERY late, it didnt APPEAR to rly affect myers tho, but it looks like he was missing a piece of the bone on the subban goal , went right thru him lol

i think Sutter is a lock at this point for Norris. PK might of been a clear winner if he played more heavy minutes, which he can do.

Also 5 points more than Suter with 6 games less played and 7 more goals which is a pretty big discrepancy IMO.

Suter has more TOI by 4 minutes a game which is pretty big but Subban is more dynamic and deserving of the Norris.

Also Subban brings something Suter never can. The NHL is trying to rebuild it's image after another lockout and Subban is one of the most marketable players in the league, and giving him the Norris (which he deserves anyway) is a win-win for the league.
