On the icetime question: Montreal has a great deal of D depth, especially after trading for Wisnievski during the season -- more so than Boston. So while losing two top-4 D-men might force the Bruins to give Boychuk excessive minutes, the Habs had other options.
So at the end of the season, Montreal had Hamrlik, Wisnievski, Spacek and Gill available, plus other veterans and still Subban was the #1 D-man. He was playing first-pairing minutes, and carrying Hal Gill, because he was that good. If he wasn't, Hamrlik-Wisnievski would have gotten those minutes, as indeed they did previously. Subban just outplayed them.
