Which Subban is better?

Which Subban is better?
Most hockey fans are aware of Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban and his effervescent personality.

His younger brother, Malcolm, is a bit more reserved.

A reporter asked Malcolm about something P.K. had said, about his brothers -- especially Malcolm -- being better hockey players than him.

Malcolm -- a third brother, Jordan, will join Malcolm with the Belleville Bulls this season -- refused to take the bait.

Until age 12 Malcolm was a defenseman, so there might have been room for comparison at one point, but not now.

"I'm a goalie," Malcolm said, "so it's hard to compare now."

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
