Might I ask who this #1 Dman is?
Subban would instantly be our most talented guy on the blueline - just that he may have attitude issues (that all depends upon who you listen to).
Dumb as this may sound - maybe a little mentoring by Lids might get a guy like Subban to change his ways, but then again it's questionable if Babcock would want him on the Wings.
Our #1 d-man is Kronwall. I agree that Subban is better. But we don't need that because there's nothing wrong with Kronwall at #1. Everybody always seems to think you need a team full of all-stars to compete. You don't. We've got a #1, we don't have a #3. So rather than spend insane assets to get a star, just to say that we got a star, why not just get the #3 that we need and keep our assets?
And that's no knock on Subban, I like Subban, he's awesome...we just don't need him for what he'd cost.
