from Sean Gordon of the Globe and Mail,
One game on the pines? Sending a message. Two? Making sure it was understood. But three? That’s creating a story where there was none.
Sure, Subban committed a howler that allowed the Edmonton Oilers to tie a game they had no right being involved in. But on the overtime goal – for which the commentariat has also fingered our guy – Mike Cammalleri was free not to bobble the puck that Subban put on his stick.
Subban, being a rookie, will be prone to mistakes. That he’s flamboyant and drives opponents mental draws greater attention to him, and thus magnifies the boo-boos.
But. But, but, but.
Seems to us there’s no rational explanation for keeping the team’s most talented defenceman out of the lineup, other than bloody-mindedness on the part of a certain coach.
