many of us made the same comment prior to... it's not hindsight.
If your new system/coach isn't able to "fit in" a norris caliber dman, then you might want to scrap the system/coach.
we aren't talking about a one-dimensional player who could only play/thrive in one system or style of play, or a guy who was constantly benefiting from playing with a superstar partner.
Subban has excelled for every team/coach he's played for in the past 5-6 seasons...
Pat Quinn, Guy Boucher, Jaques Martin, Randy Cunneyworth...
and with every d partner
Gill, Spacek, Bouillion, Gorges, Markov...
his ascent was predictable (some have been predicting the eventual norris caliber for a long time, though i don't know that anyone had him down for doing it so soon). MB let something blind him to what was obvious to many of us "non-professionals".
it's a mistake, no sense in trying to hide or excuse it.
