First, none of our prospect provide what Subban offers, a #1 top pairing D-men.

Beaulieu is nice offensively, but isn't great is his own end, and vice versa for Tinordi, so I don't think none of the guys coming up can really replace Subban.

Also I think it would be really stupid of Subban to want a long term deal like Doughty (8+ years).

I generously on a 8 year deal, Subban would get max 6M. In a couple of years, if Subban play keeps progressing like has the past 2 years, Subban is going to wish he asked for more.
