Burns is good for 15 goals 30 assist per season ( If he stays healthy)
Subban tends to take stupid penalties but has tremendous offensive upside, putting up 38 points in his rookie season which is likely to improve in years to come
It's not close, Burns is much better. His visibility suffers from playing in Minnesota.
I'm getting tired of people using this as an excuse. It's so pointless and is simply not true. The Habs scored ten more goals than Minnesota last year. Wow, big deal.
As for it not being close, give me a break. Burns had 8 more points than Subban last season, and he is four years older. It is more close than people think, and in my opinion it is pretty obvious that Subban will be the better player in the future.
The argument is that one gets more coverage than the other, which is true. Unless you believe Minnesota gets the same coverage as Montreal.
If by saying visibility he meant public viewership or something of the sort, I was mistaken. Using the word "visibility" made me think of actual offensive productivity or something relating his play. Perhaps it was just originally a poor choice of wording or a lack of comprehension on my part.
