Once again, he drew more penalties than he conceded. He can and probably should learn to tone it down a bit, but he's a pest and getting under the opposition's skin means taking some ticky tacky penalties.

It's actually a pretty meaningless stat since different arenas count it differently. Besides that, if you look at the other players leading the league in giveaways - they are all elite players. Because if you control the puck more frequently, you give away the puck more frequently. Hal Gill hardly gives away the puck because he doesn't touch it for more than a few seconds. There's a direct correlation between Corsi and giveaways.

Division of labor. It's why him and Gorges play together, because while Subban plays a more assertive role, Gorges can do what he does best - stay at home and do the little things like block shots. If everyone in your defense is blocking a ton of shots, it means you aren't controlling the puck and are being shelled in front of your own net. There's a reason Jacques Martin teams blocked a lot of shots. Just as puck possession increases giveaways, it decreases blocked shots. You can't block a shot if your opponent isn't shooting.

He's far from perfect, and if he works on his flaws, he's going to be worth even more money.
