Stop The Subban Madness

It is no secret that playing hockey in a Canadian market can be a rather difficult task and as tough as a place like Edmonton can be on members of the Oilers, nothing is quite comparable to playing with the Montreal Canadiens.

While things got off to a real good start against the Columbus Blue Jackets and Ottawa Senators, the last two weeks have not exactly gone according to plan…at least in the eyes of some.
