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.
