On that basis... yes, absolutely he has the talent to do it. If you'd had asked it a different way say - Who will be the better offensive defenseman over the course of their careers, well then it would be a different story. I'm sure the poll wouldn't be as close at it is.

As for Subban's potential, I love it. And I totally get why other fan bases come in here and think we're a bunch of homers when this stuff gets written. But I've gotta say that in this case, I feel like PK is a special player with exceptional talent. He definitely has the potential to become one of the very best blueliners in the game and his offensive potential is fantastic. Maybe I am looking through rose coloured glasses but I've really enjoyed watching him develop. He hasn't accomplished what Doughty has but I don't think it's that crazy to think that he might become as good or better in the future. PK is a special talent and if he can keep his head on right, he'll have a special career.
