PK is protecting himself from injuries ect by locking up some security and MB's position is likely to be detrimental to the team if PK even just maintains his previous performances.
I'm not in a panic over Subban's absence because the Habs finished 15th in the East with him in the lineup. My thinking is rapidly evolving to the point that I'd rather have some other team negotiate Subban's RFA and UFA contracts. If other GMs covet him badly, let them fully compensate the Habs. Let them bid against each other. Yes, the Habs would miss him but they'd have a wealth of their own and other teams' draft picks and prospects to build around and they'd still have Price, Pacioretty, and Galchenyuk.
