He was plus 12 to Suter's plus 2 (Letang was plus 16).

On Subban's team there are no elite superstar forwards. Minnesota has Parise and Koivu. Pittsburgh has a travelling all star squad.

As far as Subban being poor defensively, you obviously haven't watched much of the Habs. He plays in all situations... He's a great penalty killer, blocks shots, does it all really.

I can understand people not liking him for various reasons. I have no problem with that, he's a polarizing figure... But he's elite at all aspects of the game, Offensively and Defensively. To sell him short because of personal dislike is nothing more than sour grapes.
