I know very little about Subban, but have been decently impressed when he has played against the Canes. He seems to be more of a *defense*man than any of Corvo, McBain, and Murphy, and for my money, that's what I want in my top 4. So, if we lost McBain and Murphy and got Subban, I might be favorable on that. But I'm pretty averse to prima donnas, and that's what holdout says to me. So, tough call for me on him.

As for the sentiment that Murphy can replace Pitkanen: "Yeah, I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you on that one."
