According to a report via Nick Kypreos of Sportsnet, Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K Subban is set to be awarded the NHL Norris Trophy, which is given to the league’s top “defense player who demonstrates throughout the season the greatest all-round ability in the position.”

That's awesome. It's about damn time. Congrats.

 

Unfortunately, he will still probably go through a lot of racism (as I'm sure he has already, especially in hockey), but I'm sure he's strong enough to get through it all.

Can I ask why you say it's about damn time?

Their is racism in every sport, why do you single out hockey? Go to Europe and watch how the black players get treated there and how racist Europeans are.

^ I'll give you a Popovich-like answer, short and to the point:

 

Because it's about damn time.

Their is racism in every sport, why do you single out hockey? Go to Europe and watch how the black players get treated there and how racist Europeans are.

I'm well aware of that, but obviously there is more in certain sports than others. My intention is not to "single out hockey". If that's how you interpret it, then my apologies, but at least now you know directly from me that that's simply not my intention.

Idk if you can its about damn time. You cant just give an award because of the color of a guys skin. He was good so he got the award but hockey hasnt had that many black people play. Its not a popular black sport so there will be less black people playing. Less people means less chance for one to get the award. Thats not racism, its just greater numbers will have a better chance.

Word.

Also, Hockey has much, MUCH less of a racism problem than Soccer. I wouldn't even say there are racism problems in hockey. When Joel Ward was getting racially abused on Twitter last playoffs pretty much everyone in the NHL agreed it was disgusting and had no place.

Soccer, though? Some of the stuff that players hear over in Europe is downright brutal. There was an article on ESPN the other day about people in Italy throwing up swastikas and stuff. Crazy

I didn't know about the stuff with the Red Wings fans but those are just fans. The actual league isn't racist and doesn't put up with racist abuse unlike FIFA till just recently.

That's fair, but another sad thing that's overlooked sometimes is the fact that we always look at the obvious racists out there, whom are seemingly unafraid to show it, but then you've gotta' wonder just how many secret closet racists there are as well. Could be almost just as many. You never know.

I think about that stuff all the time. I'd be willing to bet there are more closet racists than actual in your face racists in the world. I'm not sure which one is worse, either.
