I think he'll come out of it relatively smoothly, he's done well in stints against top competition already - but over a long stretch of games, with an aging Gill as his partner, I wouldn't be surprised if he goes through some rough patches.
Subban played 25 minutes a game in the 2nd half of the season. He already faces the opposing teams' toughest players. His defensive game is very underrated in my opinion.
