It's the 3rd or 4th article I read where all the stats point one way ie Subban is a stud young #1 dman that any team would jump at the chance of signing to a long term deal. This also confirms my own evaluation of the player after having watched nearly all his games.

On the other hand, I have yet to see a compelling argument against signing Subban to a long term deal.

But our GM Bergevin is unconvinced..

Even the Friedman article, the Stars want to sign Benn to a long term deal, but it's Benn who wants something shorter. That's normal. This situation in Montreal is abnormal.

I've been thinking and I can only think of one rational explanation. NHL is going to be cracking down on performance enhancing drugs next season. Maybe PK is a guy who they know is using them and they think he'll decline after not being able to use them anymore. I am reaching big time at this point because that's the only thing that would rationally explain Bergevin's reticence. It's that or Bergevin is dumb. Not sure which is worse.
