Yes! Without Subban we're nothing...Markov is always one game, one shift away from an injury...and then what? Trade deadline is over and we're going with Gorges, Diaz et compagnie...''we're nothing'' without Subban is going too far, but saying/writing we're in deep **** without Subban isn't. 'Cause a HOT Price in playoffs can carry us far...but I still want Subban there to help Price.

Subban is the best Habs' dman from betwen the 90s till now.
If I'm wrong...that's just your opinion vs mine.
Forget I mentioned 60s-70s...Robinson,etc...
Different era, different hockey...those stats from the 60s-70s-80s...can't erally compare to late 90s stats till today...but that's another topic. Gotta go to bed soon to be fresh for Saturday night!!

Chelios vs Subban...Chelios was a defensive specialist for most of his career compared to Subban's overall defensive/offensive overall game. And his 60pts back's Subban could get 120pts if Chelios had 60pts back then...and you know it. I'm projecting of course with Subban...what we're seeing from day 1 when he joined our Habs is just a little taste...he's a future Hall of Famer.
I want to see his 76 retired as a Hab.

I'm not sure if you were around when Chelios played for the Habs, but he was more than Subban at this point. The two are similar pre-therrien. however pk now is more complete player than we saw before. The closes player I can think of in today's NHL that is close to Chelios is Shea Weber (sure he's got more size, but in there's of toughness and can change the game).

I would also agree to another poster here that Subban is better than Markov in his prime. I mean that because Subban has everything Markov had plus toughness and can play in all 3 zones. Markov is more of a powerplay offensive specialist than a defensive player.

The Chelios for Savard trade was one of the worst trades behind Roy and Leclair/Desjardin trade in the history. Savard back was on his down, if he was still in his prime like 25 yeah I'll do that trade but Savard was like Danny Briere, and you don't trade a 25 years old Shea Weber for a 34 years old Danny Briere.
