Bruins draft PK Subban’s brother, Malcolm

Jun 22, 2012, 10:51 PM EDT

Malcolm Subban

The Boston Bruins made goalie Malcolm Subban the 24th pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft – an interesting selection given PK Subban, Malcolm’s brother, holds down a spot on the list of most despised professional athletes in Beantown.

But hey, that’s PK. This is Malcolm, the top-ranked North American goalie by NHL Central Scouting.

According to McKeen’s, “he’s a complete natural at the position,” as evidenced by the fact he didn’t start playing in goal until he was 12.

The B’s already have a couple of promising goalie prospects in Michael Hutchinson, 22, and Zane Gothberg, 20. However, none were as highly touted as Subban as an 18-year-old.

    OMG, what punch in the gut for the scumbag racist Boston fan base. Oh the irony. PK’s brother! You just can’t make this kind of stuff up.

    Poor Malcolm Subban. Joel Ward wishes you luck, you’re going to need it. As Big Pappi says its a sh@t hole.

    BTW Bruin fans, what are you going to do with all those sheets and pointy hoods?

    Think I’ll have another beer.

      Hey PHT weren’t we banning these jokers?

      Dude you know how stupid you sound?

      Isn’t that rich. Somebody from the world capital of ethno-centric bias and pomposity is shooting accusations of bias. If you are not “French enough”, you are persona non grata in Montreal. As for being the coach of the Canadiens, non-French-speaking coaches need not apply. The entire city of Montreal was in a bigoted uproar when an English-speaking head coach was hired. Get over yourself. But you French folks do have something to offer (you really are French, right? That what you keep telling the world.). If we need somebody to pour the wine or to orchestrate a surrender, we’ll give you a call. You’re certainly experts in these areas.

      I will remind the poodle to the north that the first African American to play in the NHL played for the Boston Bruins, several decades ago. Keep hitting the beer bottle, poodle boy.

      • habsman - Jun 23, 2012 at 8:16 AM

        I’m not French, not that it matters. Not from Montreal either, not that it matters. What matters is that a very talented young black hockey player is going to a city with a well known, and well deserved racist reputation. Sorry, that’s just a fact. So you can point fingers in other directions in an attempt to divert attention from your scumbag racist fan base, it doesn’t change anything.

      • nothanksimdriving123 - Jun 23, 2012 at 1:42 PM

        One point of clarification insider7: The player you referred to at the end of your comment was Willie O’Ree, the first black player in the NHL, who made his debut with the Bruins in 1958. But please do not call him African American. He is Canadian! And the American portion of that semantically challenged PC phrase refers to the USA, not North America, so it is simply wrong to use it in reference to anyone who is not an American citizen.
        Of course, the flip side of the Bruins being the first NHL team with a black player is of course that the Red Sox were the last MLB team to integrate, when Pumpsie Green debuted in 1959.

        lol orchestrate a surrender … good one

  2. lordstanley65 - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:05 PM

    Ha ha…eff you, Habsman.

  3. terriers4 - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:07 PM

    As a bruins fan, I hate p.k. But Malcolm looks to be a very promising goalie for the bruins and hopefully he reaches his full potential and plays well for us. And way to group all of Boston together habsman, most people are NOT racist

    • drewzducks - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:21 PM

      Pay no attention to the out of the closet Halfman. He seems to be unaware of the Bruins history of having the first ever African American NHL player nor does he recall that Anson Carter was very popular during his time here, a time during which I can only guess that his rabbit ears got poor reception from his closet. Unlike his brother, we can only happy that Malcolm hasn’t been trained in the fine art of diving and feigning injury that is a requirement for prospects from that once proud but now completely irrelevant franchise.

      • itsallniceonice - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:28 PM

        He also hilariously mentions Big Papi, a beloved Red Sox player, and his comments about THE RED SOX ORGANIZATION not Boston. Anyone that has been here knows it’s a fine city. I’m sorry that you don’t even have the privilege of living in the beautiful city of Montreal Habsman.

      • habsman - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:32 PM

        I didn’t say the Bruins were racist, I was referring to the well earned reputation of Boston fans. But nice try at “spinning.” Typical.

      • drewsylvania - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:37 PM

        Did you put quotes around “spinning” to commemorate your 5000th use of the word on these forums?

  4. habswoman - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:19 PM

    Be careful Malcom!!!! Those racist Bruins players are going to pick fights and cheap shot you during practice!!!!!

    • drewzducks - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:22 PM

      We all knew you had a split personality !

    • drewsylvania - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:31 PM

      I read this as an attempt at amusing caricature, though I think it failed.

  5. drewsylvania - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:22 PM

    It’s habsman. It’s what he does. It’s the only GD thing he says.

  6. drewsylvania - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:26 PM

    We, of course, wanted to come here and talk about how the rivalry just heated up. Instead, we get this guy returning like a combination of athlete’s foot and bad Chinese.

    Please get him out of here.

    • drewsylvania - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:38 PM

      And now I see that drewzducks is correct. The guy has actually made two accounts for double the BS.


      • habswoman - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:51 PM

        So much hate? Racist racist racist you hate Habitants!!!! I hope Malcom plays like PK because with all that diving more goals for the Habs!!! yESSSSS!!!

    • habsman - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:39 PM

      Are you crying?

  7. kingmeech - Jun 22, 2012 at 11:31 PM

    @habsman why is your team picking 3? We picked up seguin due to our horrible rec…. Errr wait we got him in a trade. Just a typical whining habs fan

  8. kingmeech - Jun 23, 2012 at 12:05 AM

    talk about a typical montreal fan. Your team doesn’t make the playoffs yet you still talk trash… Enjoy last place in the division next year and hopefully for years to come

  9. drewzducks - Jun 23, 2012 at 12:31 AM

    Now for all of your enjoyment plea welcome Habsman…err Habswoman ?

  10. vipod4ever - Jun 23, 2012 at 12:38 AM

    careful habs fans who play the racists card here….your’e entire province has legalized racism towards anglophones…it’s called Bill 101.

  11. sheckyrimshot - Jun 23, 2012 at 12:58 AM

    careful habs fans who play the racist cards here…. bruins fans will call you gay

    • drewsylvania - Jun 23, 2012 at 11:31 AM

      Its habsman only. If you check other threads even fellow Habs fans hate him.

  12. arbruins - Jun 23, 2012 at 1:59 AM

    Habsman knows nothing about hockey…he is just a pot stirrer. He knows Boston has made a pretty good draft choice and given the amount of talent currently on the Habs roster, he may never see a post season game in Montreal for another few years.

    Congratulations Habsman, you came out of the closet!

  13. ironmike778 - Jun 23, 2012 at 6:13 AM

    Hey ProHockeyTalk…..please monitor the comments. This habsman guy needs to be banned immediately.

  14. pastabelly - Jun 23, 2012 at 7:34 AM

    Don’t get the attack on “racist” Boston sports fans. I doubt Pierce, KG, Wilfork, or Troy Brown feel that way. There are a few morons in every city. If Subban can play, he’ll be fan favorite. If he sucks, he’ll be as hated as his brother, Wideman, and Hal Gill.

  15. govtminion - Jun 23, 2012 at 8:47 AM

    This kid got taken in the first round of the NHL draft- not because his brother plays for a rival team, and not because he’s black, but because he’s a damned good goaltender. It’s sad to see that not one comment yet has focused on that- instead it’s trolling and race-baiting back and forth.

    Whatever your opinion of P.K., or Montreal, or Boston, this kid deserves better than that. Congratulations to him for being picked up, looking forward to seeing him in a black and yellow jersey soon.

    • drewsylvania - Jun 23, 2012 at 11:33 AM

      Agreed. I also love the pick because the rivalry will turn highly amusing if he reaches the NHL while Subban is still a Hab.

  16. pastabelly - Jun 23, 2012 at 11:12 AM

    I th;ink PK is very talented, but undisciplined. As much as Bruins fans hate him (I am one of them), I respect his talent and think he would thrive in a better system.

  17. insider7 - Jun 23, 2012 at 6:51 PM

    @nothanksimdriving123 Yes, and the first African American to become a head coach in the NBA coached the Boston Centics. His name was Bill Russell. If it makes your historical fact-check any more comfortable, use the term “person of color” instead of “African American”. The point remains the same.

    • nothanksimdriving123 - Jun 24, 2012 at 4:07 AM

      Indeed, I’ve always liked Mr Russell!! When I think of “person of color” I think of the likes of Picasso or Chagall. I don’t see why people need 5, 6, 7 syllables when one, black, works just fine thank you. And here’s a name-drop for you: I once had the honor and pleasure of watching an NHL game with the second black NHL player. That would be Mr Mike Marson. Nice chap!

  18. vipod4ever - Jun 23, 2012 at 7:43 PM

    Willie O’Ree, first black player to suit up for an NHL franchise….yes habsman, my fellow Fredrictonian played for the B’s. Take your racists comments to Lac St-Jean and see what type of reaction you get…I’ll guarantee they will respond with “Vive le Quebec Libre”

  19. icelovinbrotha215 - Jun 24, 2012 at 5:09 PM

    Ahh. I wanted the Flyers to draft him but gotta give kudos to the B’s organization for addressing a future need with a player who has mad potential. Maybe the Flyers can get Jordan in a couple of years haha.
