Anyhow, the point I was making was that for the price that would be paid according to this proposal, the Islanders are not nearly close enough to contending in the first place.
Taking no less than Martin's importance to the franchise and the belief that any of Reinhart, de Haan or Donovan may be doing things very similarly to Subban within a few seasons into consideration, the 'need' or 'urgency' to acquire this type of piece of the overall puzzle simply isn't a topic in Islanderville at this point.
I think this thread was started by a islander fan and I think most Subban trade threads are made by the fans of the other team. That should say alot when it comes to his value.
Since The Habs are not contenders now, the only way it makes sense to me is if The Habs get 1 player that could help now and 2 more pieces for the future. Even then it is still a risky trade to make. If he stays at the same level he is now, it would be worth it for the Habs, but what if he steps it up and ends up similar to Doughty or Weber?? That Habs would have made a monumental mistake.
