I will say this, the Montreal media, Stubbs included, are partly responsible for Subban seeing more value in himself than there actually is. I'm very happy that Bergevin stuck to his guns. Passed that first test with flying colors in my opinion.
If you're going to call Subban an 'average' defenseman, well, there goes any credibility you ever had on this board. Everyone from casual watchers to advanced stat guru's will know you for a fraud.
