I assume he would still remain a RFA. I don't think PK has as much leverage as he thinks he has. It's not like the Habs are going deep into the playoffs anytime soon. We technically could wait him out. I don't see his trade value decreasing with time.
These values are from the 2011 offseason, so they are a little outdated, but here goes:

2005 Averaged Salary Current Averaged Salary Draft Pick Compensation
$660,000 and below $1,034,249 and below No compensation
$660,001 to $1,000,000 $1,034,250 to $1,567,043 Third-round pick
$1,000,001 to $2,000,000 $1,567,044 to $3,134,088 Second-round pick
$2,000,001 to $3,000,000 $3,134,089 to $4,701,131 First- and third-round pick
$3,000,001 to $4,000,000 $4,701,132 to $6,268,175 First-, second-, and third-round pick
$4,000,001 to $5,000,000 $6,268,176 to $7,835,219 Two first-round picks and a second- and third-round pick
$5,000,001 and above $7,835,220 and above Four first-round picks

As the cap then was at around 62 million and is now 70 million, the cost to get 4 1st round picks is at around 8.7 million or so.

We're not getting 4 1st round picks from Subban.
