Good teams have the luxury to not overburden their best defenceman. Say Alex Pietrangelo is having a shaky game, the Blues can just as easily give more ice time to Kevin Shattenkirk. But at the end of the day, we all know who's the best all-around D-man on that team.
Same thing applies here. Subban was borderline-dominant versus the Hurricanes the other night. Confident with the puck, effortlessly got it out his zone, played solid defence, and skated tremendously. A complete workhorse.
At least we're not the Blue Jackets. We don't have to play Jack "Banana Pancakes" Johnson for 30 mins a night.
As long as this team's winning, I don't mind if PK's mins are kept lower than usual. Cause if this team makes the playoffs, I'm pretty confident we'll be seeing a lot more of him against the other team's top line. The coaching staff aren't idiots, they're aware of his shutdown abilities.
