Subtract Markov and Hamrlik and Wiz to start, and the later deletions of Spacek and Gill. Subban was thrust into a 1a role and played great hockey for 22 plus minutes a game. Also note the number of man games lost to injury. Let's not forget about the distracting and embarrassing management decisions and the coaching debacle.

And some people call his season a regression? If they actually watched games instead of scoring synopses, I can't imagine anyone not recognizing what a truly remarkable season he had, especially considering the environment in which he had it.
Defensively he had a much better season.
