Taking a day off, and some random thoughts on P.K. Subban, Jordan Kyrou, and more
Checking in on some sports stuff after a day off....
Good afternoon, let’s talk some sports.
I started doing this thing nearly two months ago and have made sure to have something, either general sports related or Pittsburgh sports related, on the site every single day. Yesterday was the first day that changed, and it was simply because I had a day off from all other writing responsibilities and decided to just unplug from the grid for a day and take some time for myself. Sometimes you need to do that. I am balancing several different writing jobs at the moment and it is going well, just a little time consuming and I almost never get an entire day without anything on my schedule. So I took advantage of it.
Before we get into some hockey stuff for the day, just a reminder you can also currently find me at Yardbarker writing general sports on on the Weekends, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday as well as some more in-depth hockey stuff, The Athletic’s Betting page for NCAA and NFL Football, as well as SB Nation’s PensBurgh writing about the Pittsburgh Penguins (this week: The top-15 defensemen in the Metropolitan Division). There might be more on the horizon. Also, of course, you can find me here where you are hopefully already subscribed or at least considering giving it a shot.
Now that the NHL season is quickly approaching there will be daily content on that (which will be my main focus here) and there will also be more Steelers-focused stuff coming on the Pittsburgh side of the Substack.
Now, on to some hockey.
Where will P.K. Subban play this season? Will he play?
When you look at the remaining unrestricted free agents there is one name that stands out above the rest in terms of star power.
The veteran defenseman remains unsigned and there does not seem to be much news regarding where he could end up. Nor does there seem to be any real urgency on Subban’s part to find a place. And honestly, why should there be? He has made a ton of money in his career and could work for any network he wants by just showing up and saying he wants to talk about hockey. He has options.
But surely he can still play and offer something to somebody, right?
