I think by homerun the author is talking about star players. Subban and Max aren't quite there yet. I think next season though we'll be talking a different story. I think the writer was talking about a higher standard for homerun.

I'm not going to argue with you too much on this though because I think that those guys will be stars. You're talking about future value and I think the author is talking about right now.

Subban legit first pairing blueliner? Yes. Star? Not yet. Ditto with Pacman.
