Subban is an offensive defenceman first and that's what is going to make him his money. The fact that he's also not a liability defensively is what's a bonus.

IMO, Subban needs to prove his offensive game at this point. That is what makes him special.
What makes Subban special is his two way game. He's not Josh Gorges but he's not a player you judge based on his point total either. What makes Subban so good is his ability to produce while playing very difficult defensive minutes. Subban will probably never put up Karlsson numbers...but you know what, neither do Chara or Weber.
