You thought Hjalmarsson was better than Smid. I don't think you are qualified to comment on Subban.
Every time I have to remind people about who Subban is it is a bit annoying.
Subban was one of only 15 NHL defencemen to play over 23 minutes, in all situations, produce over 30 points, give over 100 hits, make over 100 blocked shots, and play against each opponent's top offensive lines.
Couturier was a third line shut down center who produced under 30 points. Couturier has a lot of potential, and is young enough to be very interesting, but not for Subban. Not at this point in their careers. Heck, we already have our wn version of Couturier in Eller. We have nobody else like Subban.
Couturier is very good. He is not worth Subban.
Wait, now you claim Couturier is better defensively than Plekanec NOW??? Based on what? The same fantasy land where Hammer was better than Smid? Please, explain how Couturier is better defensively than Plekanec. I would appreciate ANY statistical or factual support.
