i'd love to know what the gap is btw what is being offered and what is being asked for...

if it's less than 500k or 2 seasons, then the Habs are being foolish at this point.

Not having Subban in camp from day one is FAR worse for the team than it is for the player. with such a short season, if not being in camp has even a small negative effect on Subban's effectivness/integration into the new system in the first few games, that could very well end up being the difference btw making/missing the playoffs (which is a huge revenue difference for the team).

with our schedule being favorable early (big home game stretch), the need for us to have a strong start is huge, hope MB & Molson are keeping that well in mind.

can't even make the "precedent" argument in not wanting to give him too much, when was the last time we had a dman come in and be the minute-eating impact player Subban has been in his first 2 years???

dude earned a fat pay day, 2nd contract or not. Pay him, or find the right deal and pull it off now... the longer this drags out the worse it is for us, period.
