Maybe you're just misunderstanding rather than choosing to selectively read. Because no, I don't think one is better than the other. But i do think McD has been better THIS YEAR. Which i think most non-biased people would agree.

Maybe Subban has more responsibility, but honestly, I find that hard to believe considering McD logs just as much ice time on a team that is MUCH more competitive.
I don't think this is invalid, but when you look at the leader board for TOI/G, there is one huge discrepancy between Subban and McD: Gorges is #51 while Girardi is #4. I'm not disputing the fact the NYR are having a stellar year but to me, the team's success is not so much because of their so-called #1 anchor but rather the insane amount of quality depth and great coaching. I don't think any team in this League has a better bottom-six. Maybe McD is the one guy that glues everyone together, but I see so many other key contributors on this team that it's hard for me to allow all this merit you guys are so adamantly giving him.
