The team leans on Subban quite a bit, he does A LOT of things for the Habs which have taken away from his ability to record more points (which is how the average fan ultimately values him).
Sure he's good. But to ignore his errors is to be an apologist. The types of errors he makes are unforced errors where he makes a tape to tape pass onto an opponent's stick.
Worth the trade off? Okay sure. And I also have no problem letting him work through those mistakes. That's what we should be doing with him.
But let's not pretend like these errors don't exist. He's made some very boneheaded plays that have resulted in unforced scoring chances and those are the types of mistakes that people are talking about.
I have no doubt he'll improve though. And to see PK's name popping up in trade suggestions right now is really crazy in my opinion.
