Price certainly didn't show he was worth 6.5M starting next year based on his previous play. Prust is not worth 2.5M, especially not over 4years.
So, PK isn't worth more than 4.5M to you, today. Fine. You'll find that about half the team isn't really worth what they got as a contract.
Why are you comparing Subban's contract situation with players who signed as UFA? Totally different world. Why would you want to buy Subban's UFA eligibilty at year 3 of his career? We can do that 2 years from now. We'd still own his rights. He'd play his ass off to prove he really deserves the big contract. It's smart managing.

You'd be a better player agent than GM.
