Since when did the Habs have a legitimate star rookie d-man? I think we can all agree that Subban is not a typical rookie, and therefore his contract negotiation will be anything but typical. He's the kind of d-man you build around, and those don't come around very often. No team looks at a guy like him as needing a standard contract, Habs included.
