It's a myth...teams that need to make cap space to do something specifically, always find a way.
I absolutely agree, but circumstances where training camp is 1 week long and the cap is dropping by 6M next year are not normal.

I'm not saying the Habs shouldn't sign Subban to a $6M a year deal, I'm saying that they can't without altering their roster, short of deferring bonuses. This is not opinion. This is fact.

Personally, I would be thrilled if PK signed for 8 years at anything under $6M. I think the guy is a star and a breath of fresh air for the league. My only point is that even if Bergevin agrees with me, he can't do it until he clears the cap space.
