Subban would play just as many minutes in New York if you swapped him straight up for McDonagh

They are different defenseman with different skillsets, McDonagh being your more stable or traditional defenseman. Doesnt mean hes better, or worse.

People forget just how dominant of a two-way force Subban was against the Bruins in the first round last season. He completely eliminated their first line, and they arent small guys either. He can shut it down while playing 27-30 mins a game too. Infact he was better than Chara in that series.

As for the topic, its the Roy trade and not even close. It was the defining moment where this franchise became irrelevant until basicly 2008, and you could make a point its still irrelevant today.

People really do need to stop talking about Mcdonagh already. We have Tinordi and Beaulieu coming up, and while they may never be as good (they also could be?) they're very good prospects.
