I think other teams aren't likely to send an offer sheet to Subban because they know the habs would likely match and the only purpose it would serve is to force Bergevin to sign a player to a higher salary than he would like. I doubt that after a lockout like this, teams would want to start that kind of monetary warfare.
Exactly.

Subban and his agent have not much good cards in hand.

For the good of PK, he must sign as soon as possible, even a one year deal and go to arbitration next Summer.
