Who's side are you on if you were forced to pick sides? The owners? ... or the NHLPA?

I'm not aware if he did or did not.
If that was his final offer to Subban then it is exploitation of a young player, and an example of why the penalties for offer sheets should be renegotiated.
ETA: You could say that Subban will earn his UFA contract when he's 27 or whatever. Perhaps. But he's putting up equivalent performance right now. A 23 year-old is just as likely as a 28 year-old to have his career ended in 2 years due to a hit by some maniac. He's put in the equivalent performance and should be entitled to equivalent compensation now. Income security matters.
