I think the days of having "1st" and "2nd" deals after ELC will soon be a thing of the past. There will be RFA and UFA years and they will have values accordingly. Subban's contract will be part of the redefinition.
Gorges was signed to that deal months before Bergevin arrived.

Screw that. He has no leverage here aside from an OS. If he wants Doughty money, he's free to seek out an offer sheet.
