That's why I believe Bergevin is not budging. If I'm correct, I cannot fault him at all.

Shea Weber is soooo much better than PK though.. His contract will be tradeable later on and I'd expect the cap to be super-inflated by the time he isn't worth that money anyways (i.e. 7+ years from now).

I'd jump for joy if we made that trade.

These are Norris-type defenseman on their ELCs. Subban shouldn't be in the same sentence as Karlsson and Doughty. Myers is a great d-man as well but I think he's overpaid at the moment, not interested in overpaying Subban based on potential either.
