Subban came in the NHL full-time officially in 2010-2011. It was the first time he started a season as a regular in the NHL. He was drafted in 2007. He just turned 22 at the time. I don't call it "rushing" a prospect. He had plenty of time to develop. Truth is, he was simply too good for the AHL.

In fact, Subban's probably the prospect whose developement was managed the best for the Habs in the last 20 years.
