Subban is an exciting and intriguing talent, but he played zero defense. I don't know if it's usually the case but he was dead set on jumping the play every chance he could get.
Mantha is a goal scorer. A James Neal. Scoring goals will be his bread and butter. He's going to have to learn that trying to beat a D 1v1 at the other level (or against better competition) won't cut it.

Also, I thought Subban had an active stick while playing defense. I wasn't focusing on him all night but I don't recall seeing him getting beat 1v1. Coaches will have to teach him when to jump in the play like that. The knock on him is his size and defensive plays.
