And McDonagh is awesome, but he's not better than Subban. Defensively, sure, but offensively, it's not really close.
Is he that much better defensively than Subban?

I think he's a bit more polished right now is all.

McD is no slouch offensively either though.

I tend to agree, if the Habs had gone a different direction they may very well have end up hurting themselves even more. The lesser of two evils, I suppose. Though I will to the end of days wonder why it is that such a highly touted prospect would be sent in a Gomez trade when it was seemingly common knowledge around the league that at the absolute best Gomez was a wildly overpaid 2nd line center.

Knowing what we know now it's a lot different, but even then how does Gomez' trade value get determined by the Habs that a recent 1st round pick should be included in the deal, and if he is how is there not something of good value prospect wise coming back in the deal?
