we had subban in the last two games against the caps where he played 10 minutes per game. he got more icetime when markov went down in game 1 vs. pens. not to mention that he had two games of nhl experience by that time.
subban in 11/12 is better player than subban in 2010 playoffs.

i think this habs edition is much stroger offensively than one that won two playoff rounds in 2010. cole and pacioretty are two powerforwards that we didn't have in 2010. sure we need some one like moore (right hander prefferably) but we still have more than enough space to fill that role.

if yemelin is able to fill hammers role, the habs will be a serious contender next year.
