That's showing a lack of context for where you are and who you play for. Granted, the past management has not lived up to that to their fullest, BUT there has always been the understanding that this is an organization that, if we bring you up through the ranks, you pay your dues.
He *HAS* paid his dues. He was paid $850,000 the last two years.

PK is not a contrarian, he's asking to be paid his value.

He's not saying anything like that. He's saying he's a good player in all situations who wants to be paid what he's worth.

You and I have not been following the same organization the past decade.

PK Subban has been very loyal. He was giving 100% when the rest of the team was not --- what you call "playing by his own rules" -- and he did this while making $850,000. Now Habs management wants to "reward" him by having him play for (1/2 - 2/3) of what he's worth.

They do not reward loyalty.
