You are actually one of only 3 people in all the hundreds I either know or have seen post, that would argue Subban is not in the top 30! Wow, not even in the top 30. Seriously, you are either clueless (my best guess), have never seen him play (second best guess) or a ... nah, we will stick with option 1 and 2, it is far more obvious based on your supposed arguments.
30 points is really nothing to write home about for a defenceman who gets top PP time. Heck, there were 43 defencemen in this league with 30 or more points, and 61 with 25 or more....nor is the ability to play 24 minutes against the other team's best when you were on the 3rd worst team in the league last year and had Carey Price in net.
Of course, he shows ability to be a shutdown guy, block shots, and play physical, but that doesn't mean he does it with anywhere near enough regularity to be considered a top defenceman in this league. He needs to learn basic defensive fundamentals and positioning.
