For those Maple Leafs fans who lustily jeered P.K. Subban on Saturday night — not to mention every other time he has stepped on to the Air Canada Centre ice wearing the rival bleu blanc et rouge colours — the kid from Rexdale has some food for thought for you.

Truth be told, Pernell Karl Subban probably ranks just behind Daniel Alfredsson as your most despised opponent, with the gap closing as Alfredsson closes in on retirement. Subban knows it, too. As a boy who grew up watching Alfie razzed on each visit to Toronto during those famed Battle of Ontario clashes against the Ottawa Senators, Subban now understands first-hand what it feels to feel the wrath of Leafs Nation.

But here’s the thing: Keeping all that in mind, Subban wants to know what your reaction would be if he one day found himself wearing blue and white.
