Subban had 2 good seasons + playoffs in 2 seasons + playoffs.
He's paid his dues as much as anyone else. If anything, he's never disappointed and developped faster than anyone else. He's just as deserving of a long term deal as Price/Pacioretty if not more.
He's a star already and likely our best player, yes better and more proven than Price who has been wildly inconsistent and had an average season last year unworthy of the big contract he signed.
Bergevin is dumb for wanting to sign him to a short term deal. His value is only going to skyrocket with time. Ink him for 8 years NOW. I don't care if it's 5-6M per. PK is a stud and will be well worth it.
Agreed. Price also had lost his #1 spot to Halak by the time his ELC ended. He had no negotiation power, and the team actually had to remove the guy that had earned the #1 seed to give it back to the one that was always given it.
PK is ahead of both those guys at the time their ELC ended. He is currently on par with them, if not even higher, so he deserves just as big a deal as them. Considering his undeniable superstar potential, and the way he's progressed over the two years he's been here, I'd say he has an even bigger chance of succeeding in reaching his max potential than the other two guys. So no doubt he deserves a big deal.
What's even more frustrating, is that I haven't read one person actually say that they didn't think PK will end up deserving a big deal. Seems everybody agrees he will become a very very good defenseman. But for some reason, they don't want to give him a big deal now because in two years, he hasn't proven himself enough for it, and apparently that warrants moving him. It's retarded.
Sign him to whatever he wants. Kid will be worth every penny.
