Think. In what positions we're Price and Patch when they signed their bridge contract?! No, they hadn't proved themselves back then. They have now.
Subban has proven more than Pacioretty anyway. Pacioretty was our best even strength scorer last year...and Subban has probably been our best defender since that time Martin benched him. As important as Pacioretty is, he won't make or break us to the level that Subban and Price will.

I don't understand how people can say Subban is only potential. No, he's not a top 10 defender, but he is already above average, already the only one of three defenders on this team (the other two have already got the contracts they want) who is able to be a positive possession player in tough matchups. He's not Weber or Chara but he is the best defender on this team.
