Exactly ... can't compare RL with professional sports, because it isn't. In RL everybody is replaceable, specially in a world of high unemployment worldwide.

Professional Sports is an entirely different story.

Bergevin has the leverage IMO, because the team isn't ready to contend this season, so he has no rush to sign Subban.

If we were contending for a Stanley Cup this season, because of the shorter schedule, he would have to sign him ASAP, because missing 5-6 games would be huge for a guy of his caliber and importance to the team.

He can afford to let him sit IMO.
