Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
He still makes his teammates roll their eyes every once in a while, just by being P.K. They still quietly wonder if he’ll ever really be one of them.
A Canadiens observer described Subban Monday as a hockey player with the instincts of a football player. Hockey players are often quiet, quoteless, lacking in personality, so much about the team.
Subban, who posted his summer training regimen online, was kidded by some of his teammates at the beginning of camp for being so overt.
Part of him can’t help but be overt: He’s trying hard to be more hockey guy, which is why he can be reluctant to talk about himself.
Subban wants so much to fit in, but not necessarily change, and that’s the challenge.
In a sport that often frowns on personality — who are the personalities in today’s NHL without Brett Hull and Jeremy Roenick? — Subban oozes both game and personality.
