And the "only on a 15th place team argument" is a dud too. He played exactly the same role on half a 6th place team he was on the year before in the 2nd half.
The point with MAB is if people are pointing to Subbans PP work as why he is a #1 then they are wrong, his shot last year was nothing special.

Gorges had more to do with that PK than Subban yet no one calls him a #1.

Maybe it was a slump but right now Subban is a great 2nd pairing guy and an decent top pairing guy, he is not a #1. If he is making demands of managment all of this hype is going right to his head.
