Subban might not score that many points but he is just as valuable to our team as Karlsson is to Ottawa. Pay him as he deserves and stop sticking by some imaginary policy you want to create. Gainey had a no negotiation during the season policy.. How did that turn out for us? Souray, Streit, Koivu, Kovalev, Tanguay, Komisarek.. the list goes on.. A list of players who LEFT the team for NOTHING. A 20 goal defenseman, a powerplay savant who actually turns out to be rather good at D, a 2nd line center capable of 50-70 points, a dynamic offensive forward who was a year removed from an 80 point season, a consistent scoring winger who we paid a 1st round pick to get and a player,who at the time, was seen as a premiere shot blocking and physical defenseman.
Well the management team that had him all year knew what kind of player he was as they dealt with him all year, New management never had to deal with PK, and maybe what they heard or seen or the perception of what PK is makes them shaky and they want to be sure of the product they have before opening the vault....

Oh no i forgot, they don't know anything about managing a hockey club or hockey players since they only got paid doing it for the last 10 years... And every hockey fans on the Montreal Canadiens knows better cause we breath hockey here...
