Well the rfa and UFA thing as been said countless times but still the situation is the same, if he doesn't want to sign he won't play here. Only thing is he can demand a trade or be signed to an offer sheet.

He can't walk like a ufa but still he can refuse to play for the team, looking at players like Lindros, Jack Johnson, Kyle Turris that just didn't want to play for their teams and had to be traded before their value would start decreasing.

People looking at the reality of the league knows that players wants to keep an exit door if thing don't go as planned, and that door is the UFA. Or course Subban wants a contract trough is free agency so then he can get out and sign for bigger bucks or stay and get a huge paycheck.

That's just business.
