Who's Better: P.K. Subban vs Kevin Shattenkirk

This article about Subban made me wonder what's HF point of vue on who's better right now.


Quote:
5. Kevin Shattenkirk Selected in the 1st Round (14th Overall) by the Colorado Avalanche
The best defenseman to be drafted in the first round that year, Shattenkirk blossomed with the St. Louis Blues last season, notching 9 goals and 34 assists for 43 points in 81 contests.

I would say Shattenkirk is marginally better now. However, I think "even" is the closest to being correct and I think Subban has a higher upside.

1: Subban without thinking twice

2: I like Shattenkirk, but he isn't the best d-men drafted in the 1st round in 07 (McDonagh)

The crazy part for me is that there were 5 D-men taken ahead of Subban in the 31-42 slot alone.

I'd take Subban. He is better now, and has higher upside. I'm a big Shattenkirk fan too, but I think Subban is better.

Right now, Subban is really a #2 D-Man with All-Star #1 D-Man upside. Shattenkirk is a #3-4 D-Man with #2 Upside.

Subbans better he's got #1 abilities. I don't see shattenkirk ever being a true number one. He's a good 2-3 puck moving d man that isn't a liability in his own end

Subban.

Alzner and McDonagh are both better than Shattenkirk.

Subban in a #1 (maybe #2)
Shattenkirk is a #2 (Playing as a #3 to keep things even)

Wow, Habs fans are starting to be a bit overwhelming with their favorable bias polls... Any tighter comparisons?

read the OP dude. It's based on an article that said that Shatty was the best d-man of that draft so I wanted to get HF's opinion on it. There already was a PK vs McD poll done about a week ago so I made a PK vs Shatty. Since I don't get to watch the Blues as much I wanted to know.

Sorry, wasn't targeting you specifically. But there are 3 Subban polls on the main page right now and 4 more polls with Beaulieu, Pac, Gally and Collberg. Add to that the obvious Phaneuf vs Weber troll thread posted by a Habs fan.

Subban. He does it all for Montreal and is far and away their best defence man.

Shattenkirk is great and I don't think we've seen anything close to his peak, but he did well in a sheltered role. Subban did great in a #1 role.

No prob. I do see that it can annoy other fans when there's to many content of one team, but 2-3 weeks ago it was all Oilers/Big4 and it will probably change next week

Id say it's pretty even with subban having the better point production potential. As of now though, shattenkirk it's looking more sound defensively than Subban but only time will tell which will develop better in that regard as they eventually reach their primes.

They're pretty close right now, but in the future it is undeniably Subban. I like Shatty, and he's been about as consistent as you can be in your first two season(43 points in each), but his skill set isn't on the level of Subban.

If Shattenkirk's name was Shattenpicard, we wouldn't even be talking about him.

And 'Subban FTW'

Subban.

Shattenkirk gets sheltered minutes and responsibilities.

Subban is an all-around defenseman, and a good one at that.

Shattenkirk is an offensive-defenseman, and a good one at that.

I'll take the guy who brings more to the table.

And don't forget the obvious Subban vrs Weber troll thread posted by a Leafs fan.
You don't like the polls than stay the hell out of them.
