Sure, as long as you can prove that Subban holding out is having a positive impact on the team.

You ready?

Edit. I already answered your first question. The Canadiens were hamstrung by ridiculous contracts that had little or no return on investment. Gomez being the most blatant.

We now have new leadership from the top down. Why would Bergevin come in as the new GM tasked to turning this franchise around and hand out an over-priced contract to a good DMan who has really not proven anything yet?

Sorry, but PK is not a superstar. And his on ice antics last season combined with his contract holdout is not endearing in the least bit to Bergevin.

There are other good DMen in the NHL who can replace Subban.
