After two weeks involving moving and a holiday, I'm back to civilization, with an internet connection and lots of opinions. I've also caught every Habs game, and thus far I am very impressed. A few thoughts as we head towards a weekend date with the Predators:
Don't look now, but PK Subban is on pace for over 100 pts. His play has been electric, and he is clearly gunning for a repeat and Norris #2. At this point, if Subban isn't a lock for Team Canada, I don't know who is.
The Subban penalties are becoming an issue. Last night, as well illustrated by TSN, he was the victim of a phantom elbow call, and then later in the game he was called for high sticking, when the opposing player high sticked himself. Subban seems to be a target for the referees (along with everyone else). He seems to shut it out and focus on his play, which is good, but I would hope the Candiens would diplomatically address this with the league. It's getting ridiculous.
