Meh. I don't particularly like Subban or his chances, which are certainly worse at 5'9 than they would be at 6'1, but it's pretty obvious that skilled defensemen with speed to burn (like Subban) can get into the league without their height holding them back.

What I dislike is your awful reasoning and lazy ass posting.

Hey remember when Dan Hamhuis was too short to be an effective top four defenseman on this team? :lol:

Here's the gyst of my low expectations on the prospects
of Subban. Him and Schroeder are the exact same build - 5'-9" 177 lbs. All I have to do is try to imagine Schroeder playing defense in the NHL and it just isn't pretty

I wonder if the diminutive D has ever been played at the forward spot. I'd pay to see that. I pesky little black devil that knows how to back check.

LOL, Royaldude was all pissed at me last season for saying Schroeder is too small to play bottom six center.

BTW, if Subban's 5'9 then I'm 6'4.
