P.K. Subban Is Front And Center

from Bruce Arthur of the Toronto Star,

The day dawned sunny and pleasant in Pittsburgh, one day before the beginning of a Stanley Cup final featuring Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin and a blossoming hockey underdog, and the only player being followed by the NHL’s fancy documentary-style cameras was P.K. Subban. There is, after all, only one of him, and he can’t help himself.

“Have you ever played with a personality bigger than P.K.’s?” someone asked Nashville Predators forward Filip Forsberg.

“I don’t know if there is a bigger personality,” Forsberg said.

It could be a big series. The Pittsburgh Penguins can become the first repeat winners since Detroit in 1998. Nashville is a 16th seed, and a fascinating underdog.

And it’s all about P.K., because that’s how it works. Montreal loved him. The Canadiens traded him. Their coach used to tell people he could never win a Cup with P.K., and P.K. is second on his new team in playoff ice time, matched up against Vladimir Tarasenko in the second round and Ryan Getzlaf in the third. He’ll get Sid or Geno here. Here he is.
