Michel Therrien is getting ready for his second stint as the Montreal Canadiens head coach. Subban hadn’t even started his OHL career when Therrien and the Canadiens parted ways the first time, but he’s nevertheless encouraged by the signing.

“This is a part of the process — the part of growing a championship team, building a winning team,” said Subban. “He’s got the experience at this level obviously, coaching in Montreal and working with great players.”

One of Therrien’s jobs will be helping Subban take the next step towards stardom. He’s already established himself as a great defenseman, but he still hasn’t reached his potential.

“I’m looking forward to see what I can learn from him, he’s got a lot to offer and it’s going to be up to me to soak it all in and be there like a sponge and soak it all in,” said Subban.

Of course, before the learning process can begin, the Montreal Canadiens need to sign Subban to a new contract. Subban is scheduled to become a restricted free agent this summer.

    He needs to unlearn what Coach Bombay taught him

    “The next time he gets you in a corner like that, I want you to grab your eye like it’s cut and then hit the ice!”

    He’s a good defensemen, but he’s a douche. If he cleans up his act he will be a valuable player.

    Yeah hockey flow, that’s true… Sad thing is there are so many other players in the NHL who dive more than PK…. Marchand for one, most the pens players, a handful of Canucks, I want to say Scott hartnell but he just over blue lines twice a game haha. Hartnell is a good guy as well, just can’t skate.

      Not buying it, this guy is one of the worst. He’s up there with Burrows & Co.

      Those other guys embellish for calls but there’s a big difference between embellishment and diving
