So, how many games do y'all think PK will play in the AHL next year? 20?
I think he is on a similar development curve as MaxPac, and will last about half a season in the minors his first year of pro hockey.
There is also an outside chance he could make the team out of camp. Given that skill wise he is exactly what this team needs, righthanded puck moving defenseman with a booming point shot, if we don't sign anyone it might be hard to keep him down. Physically and maturity wise, I think Subban is ready for the show. His defensive game could use some fine tuning for sure, but if they are patient that tuning could be done at the NHL level. This organization has shown that they are not afraid of rushing a player if they feel he is physically and mentally ready, and he fills a need for the big squad (Price and Lats to name a couple).
I'm anxious to see him in the bigs, that's for sure. Probably the most exciting non goalie prospect this team has had in a long, long time.
