He, like me, is confident Subban have the tools to be a stud for years to come for our teams IF he is able to put the team first.
I agree and have been saying this for some time. Why is it so hard to believe that a new management team and coaching staff might have concerns about a player who, for whatever reason, found himself in a number of scuffles with teammates last season?

I think Subban is a very good young player, but I don't blame them for wanting a shorter a term to assess everything. That plus he only put up 36 points last season. Not earth shattering numbers. He did well enough in all situations, but I think Bergevin isn't about to give him a 6-7 year deal, which I think is what Subban is looking for. I'm with management on this one.
