Ok, can someone explain to me--in a non-biased way without using the word "attitude" or any of its synonyms--why people seem to hate PK sooooo much? Because I *really* struggle to see what is so outrageously offensive about him. I get it--he's similar to B Smitty in that he has immaturity and impulsivity issues, but SO DO A LOT OF PLAYERS. I never see the same vitriol pointed in their direction. Would people seriously not want him on the Wings? Or is he only hated because he's on the Habs? This is an honest question, help me understand.
I'd take him on the Wings in a heartbeat. I don't know why anyone wouldn't. The guy is an immense talent.
He's still got growing up to do for sure but I think the Red Wings culture would help that. As would getting out of the ridiculous hockey environment of Montreal.
The diving drives me nuts, but the hate for Subban does seem disproportionate to what he actually does. And in interviews and behind the scenes footage he always seems well spoken for a hockey player and pretty humble.
