The list of people who bring Subban’s all-round skill set to the table – passing, stickhandling, abrasive physical presence, defensive IQ, special-teams ability, shooting, speed and elusiveness – is short (the only player who is comparable on all those fronts is Los Angeles Kings star Drew Doughty, and perhaps Pittsburgh’s Kristopher Letang).

Great article! I also loved the article in the sidebar that showed why Nazem Kadri won't repeat his success from this year.

I dont like the comparisons to
Letang. He's a bit over rated because of his stats. Sure he's a star, but he's had the benefit of playing with 2 of the best players in the world. Subban's all around game is much better and he puts up equal or better numbers without Crosby and Malkin.
It will be a crime if he doesnt win the
Norris, especially considering they gave it to
Karlsson last year based mostly on his offensive output.

he is better alround than both , PK is way more physical and better defensivley

its payback time and I have no issue paying a Norris trophy winner big money , its the JG making nearly 4 or Gio making 5 that screws up your cap

Subban is the crosby of defense. That's how good he is. He'll be the key to our playoff success. The last few years subban had its flaws. Right now he is total domination in every aspect. 2013 Subban, it can't get better than that.

Actually he can still become better... not a lot offensively but in defense in hitting in decision making in fighting.. it just shows his unlimitless talent.

I always think of the movie Love Guru with mike myers were the black superstar plays for toronto and sucks because he has to much pressure from mama.. (lol) and lots of black dudes start aying street hockey instead of basketball destiny would decide such a player would play for montreal but comes from toronto.. lolll life with a major troll to toronto and Myers toronto fan lover

Yes we do. This is for all the people that wanted Subban out, said he was greedy, etc.
