Maybe he never will, yet Subban's Norris has a big asterisk beside it - 48 game schedule, with no Inter Conference play and he happened to have a lot of points. How a Norris goes to a player that isn't/wasn't trusted to play on its own team's Top 4 PK is still a mystery. The most recent season showed the unbiased Norris vote for all around best Dmen. McDonaugh finished 8th in the voting, and Subban was 14th

In 2011/12, the Habs finished 28th, and several teams didn't want to pile on when they had a lead. They used secondary forwards. Go check it out. As for the rest, we'll see.

Hi Bri Hope all is good and great with you and family. Bri - when I have my Habs fan glasses on, Subban is an ace-Top 5-7 NHL Dman and one of the most (if not MOST) exciting players in the NHL to boot. When I take those Habs glasses off, I still see the abov,e and I hope it all plays itself out going forward as you mention. There are still defensive holes in Subban's game, yet his compete level and 'will to win' is off the charts. Let's hope that is contagious.

Hi 24 You are much too kind, and I am certain many would disagree with you. :-) Yakking it up on HIO is so much more relaxing... than reading the crazy news about this so very crazy world in 2014. By the way, I never bypass any of your posts. You are a very smart, favourite to exchange with.

prep writes... keep hearing about the gainey era and how giving up mcdonut was the worst trade.. but do you think the hab would have had the opportunity to draft galchy??I don’t think so>> who would you rather have play for the habs? --------------------- I'll get crucified for the following, but it is what it is. :-) I've read that argument before, yet put in perspective it will still go down as one of the worst Habs trades in history along with Roy, Chelios and Leclair/Desjardins deals. 1) Yes, the Habs were able to draft Galchenyuk at #3 in 2012, yet there were some very good and projected to be excellent players drafted AFTER him. Dmen Morgan Reilly-Hampus Lindholm-Jacob Trouba-Olli Maatta, along with forwards Philip Forberg-Zemgus Girgensons-Tomas Hertl-Tanner Pearson...... 2) Several NHL people see a better "ALL AROUND" upside with McDonagh going forward. Apart from being the Rangers PP QB, he was trusted by Coach Vigneault to play the 1st Unit Penalty Kill... 3) If McDonagh is not traded, Subban could not have held the Habs hostage last summer and could have returned a King's ransom in a trade return..and the habs would still have McDonagh as its next captain. 4) Before I get bombed because of #3, who was the better all around Dman in last year's Eastern Conference Final? Subban or McDonagh? McDonaugh: 2 Goals 8 Assists Plus +3 Suban; 1 goal 1 assist...and a rather lucky only Minus 1 because of a Game 6 Blow out of plus 3 in that specific game. Yes, Subban left it all out there against Boston, yet what about McDonagh vs. the Fylers and the Crosby/Malkin Pens?
