Exactly. I understand some folks are upset about how the team has been playing and I don't blame you.

But saying Subban is constantly making mistakes, should be benched etc makes you out to be the most casual bandwagoner noob fans ever. I may sound like an "apologist" but I'd rather sound like an apologist than a complete tool. It's funny how when Hammer was being over-matched and over-played it was a perfect excuse, even though this guy is a former 1st overall pick NHL veteran two-way D who is solid. But the guy who is a sophomore who also had a slow start offensively last season but who has been a STUD defensively... eating up huge minutes against less than favorable opponents is somehow not afforded the same reasoning playing easily 5+ minutes more a night than this vet, against tougher opposition and with worse players playing with him.

I guess now a days using common sense to discuss a player makes you an apologist though
