But the Habs have used PK Subban the last 2 years like a #1 dman, partly because of injuries but also because they felt he deserved it.

Just like they richly rewarded Josh Gorges, I think it's only normal they should do the same with PK Subban.

I get why they're hesitant to commit long term money to him...but it contradicts what message they're sending to him ON the ice.
thats the thing i think bergevin is in a tough position
you've relied on him as a #1 defenseman but at the same time, it would be risky to commit that long to him this soon in his career. I think he sees how burned the previous management team got with situations where they over commited, but i personally think, the risk is way lower than the reward so give him his time and money
