This contract negotiation is about so much more than just a simple negotiation with Subban. It is about what is fair to the other star players on the team and it is also about sending a message to other young players and their agents that this type of BIG second contract doesn't fly on the Montreal Canadiens. Bergevin will hold-out on this one. He has to.

A team cannot be competitive in a tighter slary cap if they spend all their dough on young players. Can you imagine having to pay top dollar for everyone over 22 years old...you wouldn't be able to keep them all.
