Nice. I hope someone gives it to him on Monday. Also sick tattoo in your avatar. I'm waiting for the Flyers to win the Cup before I get one.

The audio clip was just on the fan in Toronto a while ago so it's making it's way around. A guy called in to the hockey show and tried to rip Richards because he's young but both Nick Kypreos and Doug MacLean said Richards is tough and backs up his words. Pretty awesome! Also you have to figure Subban is a mouthpiece, Cherry said the same thing about him a few weeks ago and said he needed to shut up before an oldert player pounds him.

It's kind of true though. You saw how O'Donnell handled him.

Subban seems to act and talk like he's a top notch defenseman already. He's definitely not.

Thanks man. Why wait? You can always add the cup later if they win! I am considering doing that as well...

Did you watch the game yesterday? This is absolutely turning into a rivalry. It's the same way that the pens turned into our main rivals. We beat the habs twice in the playoffs the last 3 years. Monday will be AWESOME!!!

If Crosby and Richards agree it must be true.

Pk's response in case anyone is interested (from the post-game interviews)

"Richards is a great player and I have tons of respect for him".



Better luck on Monday guys.

By "handling" do you mean coming from behind and grab his head quite dangerously to push him down?

Subban will annoy other teams' key players, it's part of his game (e.g., Crosby & Richards). If opponents focus on him, they get distracted, and that will end up helping Habs putting more W's into the bank.

The best way to "handle" Subban is not focusing on him to pound him up, it will be to simply trying to take advantage of his defensive lapses and focus on the rest of the team's play.

Good point. Either that or the world just ended.

Subban is a punk. Although I've never been a fan of puckhogs and hotdogs, he is a talented punk.

Off the ice, he's apparently a great kid. On the ice, it's another story entirely.

Yes, I do mean that, and regardless of whether it was "fair" or a "cheap shot" or whatever you want to call it, Subban's going to get more and more attention from veteran guys who just won't put up with him.

The Flyers did that as evidenced by their shot total. Subban played okay, but certainly wasn't great.

All this nonsense that Subban and Richards are creating is taking away from the one who really deserved attention after that game; Carey Price.

Meh. I'd love to have him on this team. He was taken two spots after the Flyers took Marshall.

Key words, on the ice.

I can see why PK would piss people off, but calling him out to the media like that isn't the way I'd go about it myself. That's just me though.

Should be fun game on Monday. Nice to see this to be honest it's great for hockey.

Honestly, he'd never survive in Lavi's "team-first" system.

Richards was asked about Subban. It's not like he went to the media and said, "Here. Jot this down."

Honestly, Subban is the one who is handling himself incorrectly. He's a finesse player acting tough in a league where he isn't anywhere near the toughest. There's going to be some guys going after him if he continues to act like he does.

It's just the way the NHL works. It'd be better if he quieted down a tad. He can still be outspoken but make sure he's doing it the right way.
