In the first case Carter simply skated from the neutral ice, into the habs zone, and then proceeded to go around Picard like he was a pylon and scored. In the second case Picard should have been in front of the habs net next to the Flyer player, but nooooo he was standing at the other end of the zone. Wow! I really blame Picard for those two goals. If Harmlik or Markov or any normal defenseman was playing with Subban those goals would not have happened.
On the 5th goal I think it was Spacek out with Subban.

1st goal was all on Picard, Subban lobbed the puck to the opposing blueline, but idiot announcers(McGwire) are making it sound like he made a cross ice pass intercepted in front of his own net. No way Picard should get beat that bad as an NHL d-man, he looked like an orange cone.

Your definition of great must be different from the rest of the civilized world. He's a serviceable #5-6 NHL d-man, has his good days and bad days, nowhere close to anything remotely called "great".
