If the Subban camp can't move from this, I'm sorry, but he'll never get signed or will be traded and not even sure if there's someobyd crazy enough to give him that. Which in the end, makes me believe that even if they started with that the first day of the negotiation, they can't be at that anymore. This is a 48-game season here. The guy didn't play in the winter, missed a full 1-week of practices and still would be at Doughty and it would make sense? Not anymore.

And people choose sides because now it's crunch time and if we don't have one of our most important player, somebody needs to be accountable for it. Nobody would say a word if, during a season, a player and his team would be in the long process of renegotiating even if it takes 2 or 3 months 'cause it would not affect anything. But now? It does.
Agreed on all of this...but no one really knows what PK Subban and his agent are asking for. It's all rumors

And as i've said quite a few times...rumors when it concerns PK Subban, tend to take on a life of their own.

As for choosing sides, I equate it to the lockout...I didn't understand it then, I don't understand it now. Player salaries are between team and player, it doesn't involve fans, so I don't see why I need to take it personally. The age of information and salary disclosures, has turned every average fan into a salary cap specialist...

Just be a fan man lol
