► Subban taking heat: P.K. Subban has struggled out of the gate with a team-worst minus-3 rating. It has led to some to suggest that Subban needs to take a more team-oriented approach.
“One thing everyone has to learn, including P.K., is to not to overextend yourself. There’s a time and a place for flash and when there’s no open ice, there’s not. We’re going to get better and he’s going to get better. There’s no reason to panic.” — Josh Gorges on P.K. Subban
