I swear I read it somewhere in the main boards. Subban plays a fancy game, but he's actually rough and can mix it up. He's also incredibly strong along the boards. It's quite something to see.
I was just going to say, as great as Subban is offensively I am equally impressed with his defensive game. Lets not forget how he stymied Crosby throughout the Pittsburgh series last season. He almost seems to step up more when he is given a tough defensive assignment. With Markov's return, I don't think it's a stretch to say that the Habs have one of the top group of 6 (plus Picard) defenses in the league.
