Most good CFL players are paid barely more than the upper-middle class and same for MLS players and you don't see them waiting in line for food at a church on sunday mornings. I'm not saying give him 75 000$ for the next season and if he doesn't accept he's a capitalist flesh eating vampire, he's just not worth more than 3/3.5 M$ for the moment and if he doesn't realize that he's overestimating himself and anyone that believes the same is also overestimating him. He played only two seasons and still does lots of costly mistakes.
Hab fans seem to be willing to pay anything to retain Subban. We all value Subban highly but most NHL GMs probably think he shouldn't be paid as much as Erik Karlsson, for example.
