I think this idea of structure, if it's true, is a bad idea because it's better to think strategically instead of being so rigid.

I don't see up being a Cup contender in the next two years so why wouldn't we want to pay Subban more cap hit then he's worth in those two years if it means that we can have him with a lower cap hit in years 4, 5 and 6 in his contract.

Plus, I don't see how we win in this situation, it's a stupid battle with nothing to gain and plenty to lose.
