Did I ever tell you how much I love you?

You're BANG ON.

edit: Why can't the team system work that rush into it? It's clear to everyone that we've seen it less and less but he still does it on occasion when HE deems it's right. If Martin was such a good coach, he would implement that kind of push rushing strategy from a defenseman, especially one as able to do it such as Subban. He wouldn't limit his opportunities. But then again I'm no coach so what do I know of systems, arg.

We had one, aka Sergei Kostitsyn, but unfortunately Pierre Gauthier gave him away for free...

The next one is Nicklas Jensen, book it !!... if somehow Gauthier could get his hands on him in this year's draft...

This guy, Mika Zibanejad, has became the most overated prospect around here.

To answer to topic question: Subban, Price.

The absurdity of it all! Promising players, talented players, come and go. Why does anyone mention Louis Leblanc? In his draft class he's far below Duchene. Will he ever be one of the top 60 NHL forwards? He may not crack the top 100. Tinordi? If he's a solid #4 Dman for the Habs I'll be content. Personally, I think he he has near-zero superstar potential. Subban has the greatest potential of any young skater in the system but even he may not become a superstar. As I said in an earlier post, the next Hab superstar may not not have been conceived or born (much less playing major junior or AHL hockey right now).

I second that. He's the Hab's prospect that I follow the most. I've already listened to a couple of games on the radio and he looked very quick so imagine on TV.

Seriously, he's gonna be as fast as DD and he certainly won't have Gionta's speed.

So who is the next superstar to play for the Habs? Will the Habs ever do a deal ala Pronger to PHI? Is he even in the NHL, or even born yet?
I always told myself the next superstar Montréal gets will be a young american. Just some young kid who thrives on media coverage and on superstardom. He might not even be born yet.

If Markov remained healthy the past few years, IMO it would already be him. There are a few breeds of defencemen out there to select from... Markov is definately cut of a different cloth than most. He's a Cerebral quarterback, a guy whose game is completely logical, and almost surgical. Lidstrom is a better version of Cerebral QB, and there's a few more around the league... But when Healthy, because of Markov's effectiveness in this style of play, he has Superstar talent I would already say he is @ star level NOW when he's essentially been hurt for the past year and 1/2. Including the playoffs 2 years ago, and the Philly and most of the Pitts round last year.

Subban is on his way IMHO not only is he showing his skills in his rookie year He also has the swagger of a Superstar
He's brash, and is open. He'll tell you the way he sees it, and as Bob Gainey essentially said to the NHL, back up your negativity to him.. Leave it on the ice, and prove that PK is not right
Honestly! We needed a guy like him for a LONG TIME. As a few have mentioned, PK will be a face for the NHL and the Habs for a LONG time

Price in net
Markov and Subban as Superstar D-men

Scoring wise... ugh, we havent hit a home run on a forward in a long time (Koivu, who was a Star). LeClair became one after Montreal.

I think we have some guys here forward wise that have potential... Time will only tell though.
For example, I LOVE new Patches
If he's on that track, in a few years he'll be very fun to watch.
Eller is intriguing, as is Pouliot. He's only in his 3rd year of being an NHL'er (I think with as much criticism as he gets at times, people think otherwise) and I love his game that he has shown.

Patches - Eller -
Pouliot - Leblanc

Leblanc is a gamer. I know that a few question what he can be long term... But I believe with his sense of responsibility (which has been mentioned on numerous occasions) gives him an edge that can make him a special player in the long run as well too.

But a final answer to the question...
I do think PK SUBBAN is our next skating Superstar and our first true skating superstar that we made, since John LeClair.

This. I am surprised Max isn't getting more love here. He is on quite a tear and still only in his second year. I think he will be the closest thing to a homegrown PPG/powerfoward we have had in a long time. Subban will be/is a star no doubt but I think Max will take off in the next few years and that's sexy!
