    You don't. It's called a comparable, and he signed it in March, midway through the year.
    In any event, I would have been really happy with that deal for PK.

    instead of giving PK 4 yrs or 5 yrs, give him 8 yrs at $5.5 million. Longer deals cheaper cap.

    What top 6 guys do you suggest the Habs "invest" in?

    If you saw the UFA market this summer it was pretty bare and even fringe top 6 guys got huge money(Clarkson and Clowe).

    You really need to get over this , im sorry. You make it sound like they intentionally wanted to upset him which is NOT what happened.

    Pacioretty-Plekanec-Briere
    Bourque-Eller-Gallagher
    Leblanc-Galchenyuk-Thomas
    Moen-Bournival-Prust

    Gorges-Subban
    Emelin-Diaz
    Tinordi-Nygren/Markov
    (Drewiskie)

    Might be a step back from this year but I think this team would do quite well moving forward. We have SO MANY pro-ready prospects and players ready to step up into bigger roles, we either need to move them or make room for them as there's no sense losing them on waivers (i.e. Leblanc)or having them stagnate (i.e. Galchenyuk at C). I'm really hoping Markov, Gionta, and our other veterans on expiring contracts are moved at the deadline, that would be a huge building block for our future team.

    I am over it, what's done is done, but it's relevant to bring up when someone is discussing a PK contract and arguing they should squeeze pennies out of him again.

    I think you're mising an important point. Bergevin played hardball because he wanted to prod Subban into earning his contract demands and Subban came through.

    Sure, if Subban was asking 7M that makes sense. I doubt he was though, I don't see how you can go from asking 7M and then settling for 2.8M.
    PK was already well worth over what he signed for. But let's not get back into this.
    What's done is done. We'll see how much he gets moving forward.

    I'd like to grab Brian Boyle, our Brandon Prusts good buddy from New York. Could give him something similar to what Prust got. I'd go with 4 years / 9 $M.

    I can't see NB not being ready by the beginning of next year. He's going to make someone expendable.

    The UFA market will suck balls as usual. With the cap going up, teams will be able to retain their players.

    Are you serious? 2 words: Norris Trophy.
    If Pietrangelo is making 6.5 mill a season without proving himself in the league, let alone even winning a Norris then you can damn well count on Subban getting more than that. His agent will likely use Pietrangelo as an example of how much non Norris trophy winners are getting. If you think they're in the same boat then you're in for a harsh reality slap.

    who Pietro is very close to PK , dude can flat out play and is better poised in his own zone than PK

    $6.5M cap hit would be miraculous. More likely start the bidding at the $7.25M Letang just got. I'd guess 8/60 or 8/62 (though I'll confess the 8 part is wishcasting).

    No kidding...

    Bournival needs to be developed ala Daniel Paille IMO. He needs to work his way up, but 3rd line LW with Eller working the P.K and hard for-checking is where he will be most usefull once Galchenyuk ends up in a top 6 center role.
     
  21. You put way too much value into "first line". Guys like Prust, Moen, and even Latque have seen "first line" time for this franchise in recent years.

    We've been rolling three 2way lines for years anyway, not much difference between 1st line and 3rd line for this team for years.

    Yeah dude, that's what average teams do...

    We NEED to start developing real firepower lines, and Bournival is not a solution for that.

    Too early yet to decide. I've learned from other years lot can change in a few months. ie. Cole a year ago.

    Always like reading your posts (btw), but...gotta disagree with you on your above post. Or actually I agree with you writing that Bergevin did want to see if Subban could earn his contract...but he still lost 'cause now he has to overpay in a huge way.

    Imo, Bergevin had no idea Subban would come close to winning the Norris and gambled...lowballing PK Subban...imo. I don't like the lowballing part since Subban is the best player I've seen wear the Habs' jersey since Patrick Roy...imo.

    Bergevin LOST and he lost BIG TIME.
    Now he has to pay up, UNLESS...the unpredictable happens this season to PK Subban. I predict a great season as usual for PK.
    (*knock on wood*).


    Go Subban Go!!

    For the record I was one of those Hab fans who wrote 7 yrs for 5mil/year (you can look at my old posts...not kidding around;)).

    So you're saying that the GM challenging a player to go out and prove how good he is, followed by the player having a trophy winning season = losing?

    In most worlds, when you develop players and they turn out to be really good, that's a positive outcome.

    And whether you said 7 years for 5 million/year or not is completely irrelevant as I don't recall ever seeing any evidence that that was a contract Subban would have signed. Do you have any?
