Subban isn’t the end all be all of defenseman.. I love the kid don’t get me wrong.. but he hasn’t shown an ability to make me think he’d qualify for untradable status… We have strong defensive depth right now and if couturier is offered I’m all for that… Galchenyuk and Couturier as a 1-2 down the middle could be a league best at that position in a couple years…. Well maybe not best … Crosby malkin takes that me thinks….. But great nonetheless….
Also to everyone else I would imagine Montreal needing to give slighty more in that trade scenario but it wouldn’t be anything significant… Subban does hold a lot of value…
I do also think neither team trades those players….]]>
Which of course means Montreal wont do it, I’d be surprised if they would do the one for one deal honestly.
Nice idea though.]]>
Also, traditionally when building a winner, defence by committee, without a stud but with 6 capable guys is a more sound formula than relying on 3 or 4 “solid 2nd-3rd line” centres.]]>
