Besides, we would need to be getting better at scoring goals and Subban has double the goals Backstrom does so far. Why would we downgrade our offensive output like that?...

Either would I. It makes no sense for the Habs, I would rather trade Pleks and Subban for future pieces, tank and then draft a top centre in the draft in the draft like Barkov or even Lindholm.
