The Boston Bruins signed first-round draft pick Malcolm Subban to an entry-level contract today.

That takes him one step closer to a made-for-TV matchup with his brother P.K. Subban, whose Montreal Canadiens face the Bruins six times per season. (At least according to current scheduling.)

Malcolm Subban probably still has a long way to go to be the Tony to P.K.’s Phil Esposito, though.

Goalies tend to take some time to develop, and even with Tim Thomas almost certainly out of the picture, it could be a while before he receives extended NHL reps.

(On the other hand, P.K. made a quick jump – especially for a defenseman – so you never know.)

Until then, sportswriters will have to settle for less-interesting sibling vs. goalie duels such as Drew vs. Ryan Miller and Steve vs. Jonathan Bernier.

    Ya gotta feel sorry for poor Malcolm playing in that cesspool of a racist fan base.

    Is it true there is always a shortage of white sheets in the Boston area?

    Oh Chicago would have loved this kid. Sigh.

    You seem to have a lot of racist statements for someone claiming to be a non racist…spread your hate elsewhere nitwit. I am willing to bet your negative outlook on life has left you friendless and wifeless…maybe you should seek professional help?

    Steve and Jonathan Bernier are not related.

    2 Subbans down and one to go. Good thing they dont have any more, theyd be rivaling the Sutters ;-)

    And I wondered what that sound was that I heard earlier – must have been Anthony Moroses, Joe Daabouls, Zack Fleshers et als heads exploding

    Yes, Habs, it’s true…the way your mom goes through them on Nickel Night, we can’t keep up.
