Luke Schenn vs PK Subban

There's a thread about that on the Habs Forum, but obviously, we're biased. So are the daring leafs fans who come on the Canadiens thread.
Other teams fans, who would you rather have on your team?
Luke Schenn or PK Subban?

As a Kings fan, my team really has no use for either one of them, but I think Schenn will probably have the better career in the long run.

It's close but IMO I'd rather Schenn.

Hypothetically, if they are different players of equal talent (and obviously PK has offensive skill, Schenn might but Wilson doesn't allow the Leafs dmen to show it)....then how can they be equal?

I'd rather take an offensive dman who's decent defensively over a good defensive dman. Defensive dmen can't be number one dmen.

Subban's play since January though has exceeded Schenn, I wish the Leafs had Myers or Subban atm instead.

EDIT: Schenn gets a pay bump next year, Subban is still cheap under a million.

Subban because the Rangers need a puck mover.

But Schenn will be better.

I'm a Flyers fan so I have no bias of either team. I'd rather have Schenn

I like the offensive production and puck carrying in a close-call between these two very good players. It's a tough call but I want the PP guy over the long run.

For the Sens I'd rather have Schenn because we need a stay at home defenseman over a puck moving defenseman in the future and because I think Schenn will be a better player.

Subban no contest for me. 30 mins last night again... most used player in a lot of games for the Habs, which are 5th in the conference. 25 points + very solid defensive play + playing 30 mins a night at 21 is very good...

Subban. I've had a man-crush on him ever since the World Juniors. The guy might have the best skill set for defencemen in the NHL. He can do things effortlessly on the ice that 99% of the defencemen in the league couldn't do to save their lives. But I'm still trying to figure out if he's just very competitive and confident or a headcase.

Schenn is a very solid defenceman and may well be better at the end of his career, but I'd rather go for the home run rather than the base hit.

With all the Habs' injuries on defense (Markov, Gorges, Gill, Spacek), I could not imagine where the Habs will be in the ranking if they didn't have Subban. Schenn is very good but our team need a rounded defenseman (excellent puck moving + decent defensively) like Subban more than a defensive defenseman like Schenn. We do not have good offense from the forwards and a lack of offense from the back end would mean no playoff.

There's only a small number of players this young who play top-line minutes against top-line opposition, Subban is one of them. He is expected, until Markov returns at least, to play top-line minutes.

Not only Subban plays top-line PP minutes but I think he's also playing top-line PK minutes as well. Sure, Schenn plays top-line PK minutes but he doesn't play top-line PP minutes.

Komisarek also led defensemen in hits for a few years. Its a pretty useless stat really.


Anyways Subban. He has the potential to be a no1, and he often plays like one (anyone who watched the Buffalo game knows). I see Schenn more as a good no2-3 complimentary guy, not one that leads a d-corp.

Not close at all, Subban hands down.

Schenn can only dream of having a 30+ points season like Subban is having, and he's not really much better defensively, people all say this because he was labelled a top pairing shtdown defenseman at draft time. The guy is a very ordinary d-man, as opposed to a blue-chip d-man already establishing himself as the #1 guy on a good unit.

The Habs will never trade Subban for Schenn. Never. A No. 1 defenseman who can move the puck, quarterback the PP, good densively, capable of playing big minutes against the other teams best players is much harder to find than an excellent defensive defenseman.
