I am aghast.
Is he better than everyone in the league? I don't get why everyone is pumping Subban's tires, last season he made a lot of mistakes and wasn't solid every single game. I would take Pietrangelo over Subban.

Subban is an idiot if he's holding out for more money. The cap is lower, he should have accepted the contract before summer started because now he's obviously going to get less than what he would have gotten when the cap was 10M higher.

Anyway, it might be in his best interests to accept a one or two year deal. Then he can kick ass (hopefully) and earn a big contract. If he's looking for the 6 year 100 million dollar contract right now it makes it seem as if he's worried that he won't be able to earn the big bucks on his next contract.

It doesn't help that his agent obviously doesn't give a **** about hockey, these guys just want to make a crapload of money, no matter how much it can hurt a team to sign a guy to that kind of contract.
