The only downfall from Bergevin's tactics (if this is even true) is that it will leave a sour flavour to these negotiations that might come back in the future.

When the new shiny contract comes out in 3 years that allows Subban to go from a Lexus to a Bentley I think the flavor will be rinsed .

I agree Subban is safe. Philly was bidding on a 27 yo Norris defenseman against a team that appeared vulnerable financially and a player that rumored to want out. Subban comes from hab fan heritage and belongs to a team that could flick an overpaying offer sheet off like a dry booger.
