My feeling is if Subban wants to be paid like a UFA we should treat him like a UFA. There are teams in the NHL who will pay him what he wants, in both term and money and if that's what's important to Subban, I wish him well, as long as we get a decent return for him.
Bergevin is demanding that Subban be severely underpaid, that counts as treating a player like garbage.


Cam Fowler, Anaheim, 5 years @ 4 million per
Tyler Myers, Buffalo, 7 years @ 5.5 million per
Drew Doughty, Los Angeles, 8 years @ 7 million per
Marc Staal, New York Rangers, 5 years @ 3.975 million per
Erik Karlsson, Ottawa, 7 years @ 6.5 million per
Luke Schenn, Philadelphia, 5 years @ 4.5 million per
Victor Hedman, Tampa Bay, 5 years @ 4 million per
Alexander Edler, Vancouver, 4 years @ 3.25 million per
John Carlson, Washington, 6 years @ 3.9 million per
Mike Green, Washington, 4 years @ 5.25 million per

These are PK's comparables for excellent defensemen signing second contracts with their team. Many of those contracts were signed when the cap was substantially lower than it is now. PK knows what these comparable players are getting, and he wants a comparable salary. Some of those players are better than Subban, some are inferior to Subban, but with all of them together you can see the big picture and interpolate. He wants to receive equal treatment relative to equal players.

Bergevin?

"PK, you have proven nothing, 2 years @ 3 million per, take it or leave it !!!!"

Absolutely disgusting.
