Since the 2013 entry draft is supposed to be El Dorado, that would please the tankards, wouldn't it?
Can't wait to see what happens if/when he comes back and makes a defensive (or any kind, really) gaffe in his first game. Fans will get on him for not having been at training camp.

"The Boston Bruins have done that for Tyler Seguin. The Edmonton Oilers have done that for (Jordan) Eberle and (Taylor) Hall. Carolina has done it for (Jeff) Skinner. The Jets have done it for (Evander) Kane. So there's precedent for that in our industry today."

He is talking about signing important players right out of their ELC. I don't see anywhere that he is asking for "Taylor Hall type money".
If the Subban camp is only after term, I'd have to side with them. Bergevin may be shooting himself in the foot with the guns he's sticking to, here.
