I don't think Subban has proven enough to get over 5m/y, that's why Bergevin want to give him a small contract ( in term of year ) because the kid have to show something more.
IMO - you just can't look at $/year as a comparison. Some of those guys were UFA eligible and signed LT deals with their organization (Kronwall, Coburn, Bieksa, Hamhuis, etc), and other guys are relatively unproven and just signed a LT deal right off their entry deal. Additionally, some of those guys were signed when the cap was 12% greater than it will be going forward (assuming HRR stays flat).
