There's a reason the team with Subban and Markov crashed and burned in the playoffs in 5 games, and the team with :gasp: McDonagh and Girardi advanced.
What in the world are you talking about? Subban is an excellent defensive player. Even if Subban was a black hole offensively, he'd still have a big role in the NHL. There's a reason he won the Norris and it ain't just offense.
If you watched MTL last season, you'd still know Subban can't run a PP on his own yet. He's still a triggerman and Markov runs the show in terms of being the QB. A big part of his increase in points was because Markov had a healthy season. His overall play actually wasn't too different from last year.
