    Guys, there may have been other threads like this in the past, but I am curious what the general consensus is for Subban's next contract. He is one of the top Dman in the league, and deserves to get paid like one. 7mx8 years? Or more?

    Thoughts?

    That or he signs a one year arbitration deal then hums and haws the season after next forcing the team to trade him.

    Bergevin better break the bank for him. It wouldn't be the time for penny pinching.

    That would be the highest cap for a dman in the league.

    But yeah, it should be something between Doughty (7Mx8) and Weber (7,85Mx14).
     
  6. We'd get the juiciest of return. But why the hell would he want that?

    AFAIK, he wants to play here. He's happy here. He knows coaches and GMs come and go.

    $64 million for 8 years is the only option I see

    7.5 to 8 sounds about right, he's the first elite defenseman to hit arbitration eligibility and that seems to be the going rate for early to mid 20's elite players right now. I mean if he went to arbitration he could prolly use Weber as a comparison who has a cap hit of 7.85 and that is with the circumvention years tacked on at the end.

    I think you can only sign a max 8 year deal now. I'd go with 8X8 but it would be nice if he could save the team a few hundred K and go 8 years at 7 or 7.5, either way he deserves bank, especially for accepting the bridge deal.

    Me too. Though he could demand more if he wanted to. Esp after the way we screwed him over, I wouldn't blame him.

    8x8 is what I'm expecting.

    Yeah, I guess 8 years at 7.5 per year seems kinda legit.

    There's no way we will lose him. I am on Bergevin's side with wanting PK to go the bridge contract route, PK did his part and now it's up to Bergie to do his. If he messes this up I will lose all faith in him as a gm. I am not worried at all though as I am sure they ink a deal before PK hits RFA status.

    or he'll hold out and request to moved to a U.S team where his personality and style will make him millions alone in sponsorship deals.

    I won't hate him if he does. He's a super star with 5 star character and personality.

    He deserves to be the face of a franchise, a celebrity in his own right.

    If he can't have it in Montreal he would be an idiot to not want it in the U.S.

    He is a dream for any u.s franchise.

    It's hard to use deals like Weber's and Doughty's since they were signed under the old CBA. Weber's deal has 1 year at $3 million and then 3 years at $1 million tacked onto the end, which helps bring the cap hit down to about $7.85 million. Without those years his cap-hit would be about $10.4 million.

    Since you can't do that anymore, expect PK's cap hit to be at least $8 million a year.

    that's an understatement

    go on...

    can of worms

    hell yeah

    yes. a man of his stature deserves more swag

    sounds about right

    if you're saying more years, cba says no dice. money? sure it's possible

    glad you asked: a lot of it depends if he gets another norris. if he does, he'll be the first to repeat since the cyborg swede and the field for young high quality d-men has never been this packed in years. let that sink in for a minute...

    if that happens, on one hand, hell yeah, 2 norris *****es. on the other, he could ask for, and receive 8-8.5. ****, maybe even more...

    realistically, i think he'll get karlsson money or maybe 2-3 hundred grand more but that's about it

    I'd expect it to be between 6-8 years at between $6.5-$8 MM.

    Is that vague enough...? Some where in the middle but closer to the higher end. Doubt we see 8x8.

    7.6 years is too much, let's go for 7.2 years
