Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,
“He’s (Subban) a guy that’s come in the league and hasn’t earned respect,” Richards told Team 990 after the game.
“It’s just frustrating to see a young guy like that come in here and so much as think that he’s better than a lot of people. You have to earn respect in this league. It takes a lot. You can’t just come in here as a rookie and play like that. It’s not the way to get respect from other players around the league.
“Hopefully, someone on their team addresses it, because, uh, I’m not saying I’m going to do it, but something might happen to him if he continues to be that cocky.”
Those are the kind of inflammatory words that should warrant action from the NHL head office, but as Subban prepared for tonight’s game at the Bell Centre against the Nashville Predators, he seemed confused by Richards’s comments.
