Having said that, he is a hell of a hockey player and a pretty good all around winger. If you don't like a guy that is fine. Who am I to say that you can and can't like a player? The point I am making here though is that a player's talent level and ability shouldn't be downplayed because you don't like the way he conducts himself out on the ice. If he is a good player then he is a good player.
I would totally agree with your feelings about certain players if those players didn't actually contribute tot he game. Take Zach Rinaldo for instance, the guy doesn't have an inch of talent, he is purely a goon who is out there to injure people. People like that are detrimental to our game not Burrows and Subban. Are they hated here? Yes. Are they great players? Yes.
I know for a fact that Bruins fans absolutely loathed Zdeno Chara before he came to Boston. He was a big time enemy of this team and he always gave us fits. Now he is one of us and is honestly my favorite player in the game.
I just think that players play a certain way because of the environment, system, or staff they play for. We may hate players now, but in our uniform your opinions can change drastically.
I heard they don't like to be called brothers.
I seen Marchand try to fight Looch and Quaider in camp his first year ...nothin wrong with practicing like you play.
Subban would be an amazing fit with this squad IMO...doubt it happens but one can dream.
These guys play a contact sport in game and practice. There is no doubt these guys push and fight each other in practice given how competitive they are.
It is impossible to play a contact sport and not get into a scuffle here and there regardless of whether or not it is practice.
Hell I have gotten into scuffles playing Basketball haha
PK Subban: Hate 'em.
I hope Malcolm never lets him score a goal once he's playing goalie for us. Love Malcolm's potential BTW.
Marchand and PK on the same team? I'm not sure they could co-exist on the same team.
First Milk Crates, Now Water Bottles.....Nothing is Safe
I wouldn't say they are extremely good friends. They know each other off the ice and they played together before. That's about it.
And I also don't think OneMan meant it as between those two. I think it was more of a joke having two pests on the team.
Feeling left out in society? Are you that kid? The Bruins forum can help you.
