7 players who disappointed this season

  7 players who disappointed this season With the 2019-20 NHL season on pause - if not over altogether - some players have been left hoping for a chance to redeem their underwhelming campaigns. Here are seven players, including former Vezina Trophy netminders and perennial goal-scorers, who disappointed before the hiatus. Sergei Bobrovsky, Florida Panthers Bobrovsky was supposed to take the offensively gifted Panthers to the next level after he signed a seven-year, $70-million pact last summer. Instead, it was the same old story for a franchise that was on track to miss the playoffs for the 17th time in the last 20 seasons.

New Jersey Devils defenseman P.K. Subban isn't necessarily in a rush to return to the ice anytime soon, understanding there's more at stake.

"Health is No. 1. Even though I miss the game, and I miss my teammates, and I miss my job, I want to see people healthy, I want to see people back to living a normal life," Subban said in a digital interview with CNBC.

"There's so many people out there that are suffering," he added. "It's very, very hard to think about hockey and the season right now until those people land on their feet."

"He decided to bring my trophies in here for motivation and when he walked around the back, he kicked out the plug!" Carfrae said, according to TMZ Sports. "What an idiot!"Carfrae was immediately disqualified after being disconnected, but she still took the time to share her pleasure with the event on Instagram.

Between his daily workouts with fiancee Lindsey Vonn and hosting the league's new digital show, "NHL Hat Trick Trivia," Subban has been keeping himself busy since the league halted play on March 12.

With the NHL pondering the issues around a potential return to action, Subban says he isn't a fan of some of the options put forth so far - namely, playing games without fans in attendance.

"I'm in favor of playing in front of fans. A big part of being a professional athlete is feeding off the energy of fans," Subban said. "We always talk about it, in sports entertainment, we have to entertain.

"We need people to want to pay to watch us play, we need people to want to turn on their TVs and care about what we do. If they don't care, where does the income come from? In my opinion, you need fans."

The NHL on Tuesday extended its league-wide self-quarantine period through April 30.
