Now, Bergevin is refusing to give Subban his well-deserved due -- approximately 6 million per year for 6 years. He thinks the players who was our no. 2 dman in 2010-2011 and our no. 1 dman in 2011-2012, who plays 24 minutes a game in all situations is at the same level as Price and Pacioretty were when they got their second contracts - lol !!!!! We might start the season without Subban. Does that make Bergevin a tanker or a bigot? Don't know.
Either way, without Subban, we have a very good shot at drafting Seth Jones.
I wouldn't go as far to say he was available on the cheap considering the size of his contract (granted it is only 1 year). Too early to tell if its Bergevin or Meehan who is at fault imo, still got time but it is running out..
