Just dances around Subban.... 

I'm not sure if I'm seeing the same thing as everyone, but what could Subban have done without taking a penalty. The puck was dumped in and the forward was hard on the forecheck. He didn't get danced around because the forward didn't stick handle through him and he made the forward take a slightly wider path without interfering (depends on how the refereeing is that game, the limits on what is considered interference may vary). He then covers for McEneny rather than two defenders chasing the puck. Pretty sure this is a standard play for a defensive pair that turned out bad due to a hard forecheck and possibly McEneny's knee not strong enough yet from his previous injury on the same knee.

 

I agree that Subban isn't strong defensively and he's probably made many mistakes, but I think it's a bit of a reach to put blame him for the injury. I'm no coach or anything, but I'm curious to hear how Subban should've played this properly.

Yes, I think you have read the play correctly. I probably owe Subban an apology !

Don't feel bad. It's the norm on here. Hero to bum as soon as a player is traded.

When they are here, every excuse under the sun is made for their mistakes/shortcomings/perceived weaknesses BUT after they are traded it's like a veil is dropped and reality shines through.

It was ever thus with "new,  shiny, hip"

He required waivers this year too fwiw. Either way, we've derailed AG's thread enough lol

Bringing this from the Gaudette thread.

 

McEneny, through some fairly odd criteria, was not required to go through waivers this year. It was one of those rare CBA things that benefited the 'nucks.

 

Not fortuitous on the 2nd round pick for the Tortorella signing scale, but avoided ( I think ) a real possibility of losing him. His current injury kind of negates any good fortune that came our way. McEneny will not be part of our top 6 + Juolevi + ( #1 draft pick ). Can he be the 2nd spare d-man along with Biega ? I hope so, he's my favourite from the Comet ranks.

 

PS....everything here assumes that there is no personnel movement in the off season. I'll try to find the criteria that allowed him to be waiver free.
