Let me maintain my position on the Subban bandwagon even though it's actually popular now: Subban will be a Norris finalist in 2013-2014 as long as he has a healthy season.
I argued up and down he was the undisputed #1. Subban was already better defensively than Markov ever was, and clutch in the playoffs to boot. He may never read the game at the level Markov reads it at, but his athleticism is OFF THE CHARTS.

This is a player that IMO can play well into his 40s. He is a pure beast.
