Subban has played fabulously for 2+ years.

Subban rocked in the 2009-2010 playoffs, when he replaced an injured Markov and helped us make the conference finals.

He was our no. 2 dman in 2010-2011 when we were a 6th place team that was a lucky bounce away from eliminating the eventual champions Bruins. He was only a little less useful than Hamrlik, very close to being our no. 1.

He was our no. 1 dman in 2011-2012, playing 24 minutes a night in all situations. He was a "+" player going up against the league's best on the third worst team in the league, he's that good.

Price and Pacioretty? They were potential busts when they were negotiating their second contracts. Subban is not a potential bust. Let's not talk about his ceiling, let's talk about his floor. His floor is no lower than a no. 2 dman on most good teams.

He is right up there with players ranging from Tyler Myers to John Carlson in deserving a good second contract.
