Edit: after reading some responses it looked as though adding the 1st might be unfair to Vancouver. What if just a straight up trade. Edler for PK. Vancouver is overloaded in good left side defence, a young high upside right side could fit roster nicely.
Not interested as a Habs fan, unless Subban gets some crazy contract a la Doughty.

As for the bolded part, playing with both Sedins probably explain part of why he has superior numbers. I wouldn't claim either of them is clearly better than the other at this point, but Subban still has room to grow, which makes him more valuable in my opinion.

Plus, it would seem Nucks fan are not all that interested in trading him for Subban either.
