People forget that a developping defenceman takes time, and sophomore slumps are common.

I still think Subban is on track to be a top tier dman in this league and I hope its in Montreal.

Speaking of Sophomore slumps, remember when many in the fanbase and media wanted Carey Price traded?
You wouldn't trade Subban for Weber or, a guy many on the Preds' board consider to be better than him, Ryan Suter signed to an extension?
