Seriously folks, Cam Fowler received a five year, $4M per season extension with the Ducks only because he put up decent offensive numbers. His defensively play is not up to NHL par but he puts up points so the Ducks are paying him for it.
Subban puts up similar points, is unbelievably superior in the defensive game and will pay more taxes in Montreal but he's worth 4 million max?
There is a different economic climate now with the new salary cap under the new CBA. The salary cap is going down to $64 M next year, and the contract rules are having a deflation effect on salaries. The Michael Del Zotto (sp? and Dimitri K in Florida contacts are evidence of that (2 years @ $2.5 M). MDZ had similar offensive numbers to Subban.
I like the Montreal Canadiens stance in ensuring younger players do not hit the lottery too soon, wait for a third contract and know for sure what kind of player you are dealing with, especially in a salary cap world, before you have another Scott Gomez on your hands.
