I think the main problem with Subban is the expectations that were placed on him. Many expect him to be a Norris candidate already so they end up disappointed. He's still a top2 defensemen on this team and will likely be for the next decade or more.

EDIT - Whats up with HFboards these days? I have such troubles logging in that I frequently give up posting
