I didn't know if Bergevin failed to sign Semin because he hates Russians or because he wants to tank.

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.
Jesus that must be the most ludicrous thing I've ever read in my life. I can name roughly 700 players with better defensive play than Semin.

Anyway, you're jumping to hilarious conclusions and only embarassing yourself. I'll remind you that we still haven't played any games yet, which means Subban has missed exactly 0 games dueo this negotiation. So take it down a notch.
