And yet he only really matured his game by improving on the defensive side, even as his point total fell. That is because two way defenders are more valuable.

I'm not saying Subban is as good as Doughty. He's not and he doesn't deserve Doughty money. But they play similar roles, and in fact Subban almost scored as many points in a more defensive role last year. And more importantly...I'd rather have a 40 point top tier defender like Subban than a superior offensive player at the expense of defense.
