Subban will have to accept the 2 year deal, anyways, there's only 40 or so games left in this year and can he start negotiating his long term deal as soon as next year.

While the Habs will have to offer more than the 2.75M they're reportedly offering him, probably start at 4.5M.
MB is just making it worse by dragging this out...

The longer he waits, the harder it is for him to cave bc it sends bad message to others that if u play hardball, he'll cave.

For subban, with the lockout prep, he was already getting comfortable with the idea of no hockey this year... Think Meehan will let him give in now? Doubt it.

Habs have way more to lose, no subban this year hurts us, & subban can go play in Europe (I'm sure his khl offers are substantial) to get "playing" again... Can the habs really afford to let his value slip away just to prove a point?

Just suck it up, get the 6 year deal signed, and star spinning the positive PR already
