Mark Messier gets furious at PK Subban for criticizing the Oilers

PK Subban, known for his bold commentary, stirred up controversy last night when he labeled the Edmonton Oilers' defense as "soft." This comment didn't sit well with his co-host, Mark Messier, who appeared visibly upset by the remark.

Possibly upset due to his ties with the Oilers, seemed to disagree with Subban's harsh critique or perhaps felt embarrassed for his former team.
"Calling them soft is one of the worst criticisms you can level at hockey players, especially during the Stanley Cup Final,"
Noted Subban, underscoring the severity of his assessment. The term "soft" particularly stings in a sport renowned for its physicality and intensity.
The reaction on social media was swift and varied, with many NHL fans surprisingly supporting Subban's point of view. Despite the lack of a video clip of the segment, the discussion proliferated across platforms like X, where opinions diverged.
While the Oilers' defense has clearly been a vulnerability, the label "soft" might not accurately capture their struggles. Darnell Nurse, Cody Ceci, and Evan Bouchard have indeed been guilty of crucial turnovers and defensive errors throughout the finals against the Panthers, but it's not from a lack of physical engagement.
As the Oilers face a critical game tomorrow, the stakes couldn't be higher. If they lose, the Calgary Flames, led by Matthew Tkachuk, could clinch the Stanley Cup on Edmonton's home ice. However, a win could reignite the Oilers' notorious resilience and spark a turnaround worthy of a fairy tale ending.
