Yeah I definitely see him going for more in a couple years, Montreal could have saved themselves some cash by signing him long term.

True - however Subban was looking for big $$$ for 5 plus years.

 

Habs GM Bergevin was in a tough spot;  do you sign Subban for long term (mind you the guy only has 2 years of experience in the NHL), or as the GM you take advantage of the fact that Subban has no arbitration rights, and work out a short term deal to see how he developes?

 

IMHO - this deal is for the better for both sides.

Probably didn't want another Gomez mess on their hands

 

Edit: or Carey Price for that matter, 6.5mil/year for him... Imagine how much Howie could fetch in Montreal lol

Weird.

Good for Pernell Karl. If all goes well, a much-larger payday awaits him. He seems to be a classy individual (with this as just one of many examples), well-liked by both fans and the relentless media in Montreal.

 Congratulation to Subban, and to me, because he is on my fantasy team. Happy day!

Glad we didn't sign him. He's good offensively, but, he's not worth 5-6 million dollars long term, nor the picks/prospects needed to bring him here. The Wings need a shutdown guy to be paired with Kronner, because Kronwall is pretty good at moving the puck, but there is no real shut down guy in the top 8 d-men in the system.

He wouldn't have signed for less than $4 million with us, guaranteed
