Why is there an obsession to pay outrageous salaries to these 2 players who are under the team's control for several more years. Price and Subban have exactly one good year under their belt, that's great but a well managed team would not give Subban a huge raise after an ELC. the rules of management don't change because the player is a fan favourite.

Admittedly management have painted themselves into a corner with Price but it does not mean he should be given much more money than his modest accomplishments justify
