This is an opinion board.

You have no idea what's going on with Subban. No idea. Me neither. We do go and try to pretend like we do, and that's fine, that's what a board is also for. But if Subban signs today....and it permits the Habs the same some major money...how will it still consider a failure by you?
Obviously, if Bergevin redeems himself by either signing Subban to a great contract, or winning a trade involving Subban, then my criticism retracts and will be replaced by praise.

However, right now, what we do know with reasonable confidence is that he offered a 2-year contract @ 2.75 million per, maybe 3.25 million per, which is an insult to our no. 1 (maybe no. 2 !) dman. We also know that it's very hard to win a trade when you try to get rid of a player. If we do win a trade, I'll gladly eat crow, but I'm skeptical.

Give him as much of a chance as you want. If you want to give him the benefit of the doubt, and you're not willing to be critical of decisions that seem flawed early on, that's fine. At some point however, Bergevin's decisions will have to show results.

I don't think we should have to wait five years or whatever to evaluate a GM.
