Let's put it this way -- if your team has a 1-goal lead, would you be comfortable with him out there protecting it? I wouldn't.
For sure, Subban loves having the puck on his stick, and gets too caught up with the highlight-reel play. I agree with you that he improved over the last season and still has work to do. A 1-goal lead? If we hypothetically mixed Subban in with the current D line-up, my first choice would be Coburn - Grossmann, but I wouldn't say never to putting Subban - Timonen out there. Conversely, Subban would be out there almost every time I was facing a 1-goal deficit with a minute left.
