Again, I give a lot of respect to the poster who finds me the report, by either a poster in HF or a serious company, that said that one of his biggest knocks was that he was soft.....Somebody needs to explain that one to me....

As far as his fight against Couture.....good for him even though Couture might lose a fight against Lapierre.....it says it all....

As far as his "almost fight" against Conboy at the develoment camp was really close to happening. Evidently, Subban was the only player at camp to play with that much energy and hitting everyone constantly. Then he went and try to hit Conboy, a pretty questionable hit that Conboy didn't protect himself too much...Anyway, Conboy turned around and looked more stunned and surprised but they almost went at it, a little pushing that didn't transform in anything but that was close....

I think the swings were a little wide and slower then average. He sure has power. He's just got to make sure he doesn't do that to some guy who's got fast punches because PK's going to get have to play with one eye for the rest of the game!

But it's great to know he's willing to drop the gloves and protect himself if the refs don't. The Habs look more and more deep at D..

He really doesn't like Subban, for whatever reason.

He does, however, hold McDonagh in high praise and states that he will be the best defenceman of his draft class.

I remember this sharkspage.com entry. It didn't make much sense then, and makes even less sense now, even if PK is not Petrecki-mean. I'm looking forward to his NHL career.

For most HAB fans, this is an understatement! .

We're all looking forward to his NHL career debut with our beloved HABS (I can't wait and I'm excited for him, a true Hab at heart).

Go PK Go!! (more like PP Subban!)

But where would he fit on our blueline?

What with Markov, Komisarek, hamrlik, O'Byrne, Gorges, Valentanko, and McDonagh all ahead of him on the depth chart?

Markov, Hammer, Valentenko, and McDonagh are all LDs so there is no problem. PK's competition will be players like Streit - if he is resigned - Weber and Carle. Those guys are all offensive right Ds. Although Komi and O'Byrne are RDs, they are different type of player - physical, stay-at-home D.

The thing that I think is reassuring is that we know he will give effort and not just be lazy.
