I disagree with you.

I cannot believe how quickly people are forgetting the disaster contracts signed by the previous two GMs. And those horrible contracts have hamstrung this franchise.

Sure, we are getting rid of Gomez through a buyout but look at the waste of money, this year included. Markov should not have gotten the money that he did.

And here we are.......now that we are finally getting rid of a brutal contract people are demanding another.

Gomez had upside, right? So did Markov and his bad knee. And now a lot of fans want to throw a lot of money on a good DMan. Not great, good.

Bergevin is not Gainey or Gauthier. And I hope that he is not pressured into becoming them either.

Popularity is not a requirement for getting a long term contract. Subban understands (or should) that he is not a superstar. Yet he and his agent have decided to play hardball.

My sentiment remains the same. He is putting himself above the Team. Time to be shipped out. There are a lot of GOOD DMen that we can trade him for.
