Most minors IN THE LEAGUE. Not the habs. Well, yes the Habs as well. But the LEAGUE. Two years running. By a significant amount.

Saying his points aren't "#1D worthy" and his hit/blocked shot stats COULD BE BETTER, are not flaws. He's a young defenseman nowhere near his prime, and already playing #1D minutes.
Given who the rest of Montreal's defense is, yes. And he does not play the most minutes when you take away PP time.

His points are not anything spectacular, and offense is what most Subban-lovers point to. If his offense isn't top-pairing worthy, and nothing else is top-pairing worthy except for his ice time, he is not a top-pairing defenseman.

For the amount of ice time he gets, and the hype he gets, his hits and blocked shots are worse than "could be better".

Also, I'd say he is pretty close to his prime. 23 years old, and already given every opportunity imaginable.

Way to take something from another thread entirely. Maybe I should follow around your posts too.

Komisarek doesn't have good trade value, but it is not negative. He would have value to some teams in the NHL. That is all I said, and it has nothing to do with the current discussion.
