Fans Call for P.K. Subban’s Termination from ESPN Over Controversial Comments

P.K. Subban faced controversy frequently while he was a player. It appears that nothing has changed since he retired and joined ESPN as an analyst.

The former Norris Trophy winner Subban is facing backlash for remarks he made against the Toronto Maple Leafs and a well-known plus-sized celebrity.

Subban was on the air commenting on the Leafs’ in game 1 of their second round series against the Florida Panthers, when he referred to Toronto as needing to bring more to their game.

“Listen maybe they need to pack a Lizzo sized lunch. They weren’t prepared in my opinion.” – Subban

This issue runs deeper, and the NHL needs to do something to change this toxic culture in hockey.

Subban’s analogy isn’t sitting well with many.

This is completely unacceptable, and he’s getting a lot of heat on Twitter for this.

So what do you think, is this an appropriate comment or did Subban cross a line and deserves to be fired from ESPN?

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
