I'd say Subban is better than Myers - he got 5.5.

The CBA as it is now, leads to big 2nd contracts....it sucks, but that's the way the cookie crumbles.
Karlsson goes in the Doughty territory. He just won the Norris.

Myers had proven more than Subban at that stage and had won a Calder. That's a contract that paid for potential, and a contract signed prior to a potential lockout and new CBA. Same with Hedman.

The situations here are different. No way any of these players, aside from the Karlsson types, are getting lucrative long term deals before a new CBA is agreed upon. There's a reason why nearly all of the high profile RFAs have yet to sign.
