“I Threw It All Away”
The Time Has Come And Gone
Malcolm Subban-Goaltender, Providence Bruins
Poor Malcolm Subban. In just four periods of NHL hockey, it’s likely PK’s younger brother has played his entire Boston Bruins career. The 24th Overall Pick in the 2012 Draft, Subban has yet to establish himself in the AHL, let alone the NHL. Subban is currently 4-8-1 in Providence, with a GAA over 3.00 and a save percentage just a hair over .900.
Having been passed on the organization’s depth chart by Zane McIntyre (and possibly even Daniel Vladar), Subban’s career isn’t necessarily over, however. His career in Boston is a different story. Best of luck to him elsewhere.
No, “summary” is not a Bob Dylan song.
It’s safe to say that this is the deepest prospect pool the Bruins have had in a long time, though that isn’t hard given the team’s atrocious drafting in the mid-2000s. There is considerable talent all over the ice, both depth wise and on an individual level. With marquee players on the parent club nearing or moving beyond their prime years as the team continues to tread water, many of these young guys can’t get to Boston soon enough. With roster turnover expected at forward, as well as defense next season, spots will be up for grabs…it will be up to Boston’s youngsters to get the team off of ‘Desolation Row” and toward the “Gates of Eden.”
