I didn't mean to say they have similar games and should have said what they've brought to this point in their careers. Yes Subban is a better defenseman but Gilbert hit his ceiling fast and got worse every year. Subban is much more physical and has a way better slap shot that Gilbert.

But I think Subban has a bit to go before he deserves a long term or big dollar contract.
Perhaps, but if Montreal is going to use him like a #1D, and they were, then maybe they should be prepared to pay him accordingly.
