Face of the Franchise?

Saw this over in the Blues forum, them debating who is the face of the franchise, Backes or Pietrangelo.

Just curious who you guys think is the face of Montreal.

Price?
Subban?
Patches?
Gorges?
Markov?
Plekanec?

Or do we have to look towards the future, maybe someone like Beaulieu or Leblanc?

PEEEEEKAAAAAAAY

I considered Price too but I think we have the horses in front of him too and the best one is #76 and he is a billion times more marketable than anyone on the team (inc. Price)

I voted other because there is no individual, just a team.

For me it's unquestionably Subban. He's the most important and valuable Hab by virtue of the position he plays and being really really good at it and he has the personality.

As the poll results suggest, it's not even close. We have many faces, with different hats. Exuberant PK. Determined Pleks. Steady Gorges. The powerforward in Patches.

but in Montreal goalies comes first. This is Price's team.

For now, it's Price.

He's not the best player, or the most valuable, but he's the most popular.

No doubt, Price is our most important, critical player.

But if i wanted to have a player who is the PR specialist, kind of an ambassador of the team, I'll pick Subban anytime.

If Price isn't the Habs' best player or most valuable who is?

Fair is Fair, I disagree about Subban, but that's cool everyone has an opinion. But.. In virtue of the position, I would say goaltending is pretty important! But eh, we're all on the same team.

It's about how important stuff is on the margin. In the modern NHL Good defensemen are more difficult to acquire than good goaltending so I think it's more important than goaltending. The difference you get between Price and a goaltender you can acquire for say a 2nd and 3rd round pick is a lot less than the difference between Subban and a defenseman you can get for a 2nd and 3rd round pick.

To put it simply if I were Bergeron I'd entertain a wide variety of trade offers for Price. Trading Subban would take something absurd.

Price is the face of the franchise because he's our best player. However, Subban is a marketing expert's dream and he is probably the biggest fan favourite right now. Another big season and Patches will enter this discussion as well.

To me it's PK and it's not even close.
But i understand why most of us (fans) say its Price.

Definitely Price. Subban feeds in Price's hand.
