Subban should get a six to eight year offer.

He is not equivalent to Pacioretty and Price as they were not established top-tier NHLers when negotiating their second contracts, whereas Subban was the team's no. 2 dman in 2010-2011 and no. 1 dman in 2011-2012.

There's a lot of risk to being the no. 1 dman on a weak team and playing 25 minutes a game in all situations. He needs some sort of guarantees in case something happens, same as veterans get. If I'm Subban I hold out for more. If they're going to insultingly limit him to two years, he should be paid at least 6 million per year, since Markov is getting 5.75.

I hope Subban doesn't become the next Chelios/Beauchemin/McDonagh.
