Now, take it with a grain of salt, but

Apparently Meehan has told Subban to sign a bridge deal, but he wants to get paid top dollar right now.

If that is true, Meehan has been around a long time, and has made life for GMs hell over the years, if he's agreeing with the bridge contract position, than this is looking more and more like Subban becoming the bigger part of the problem than a new GM who doesn't want to cause massive cap issues next year and beyond.
? That reads like Carbonneau making a bad deduction? There is really nothing there, silly of RDS to even put that up. MDZ opted to play. Meehan is not going to counsel his client to leave tens of millions of dollars on the table. Agents want their long-term guaranteed cuts too. And Meehan also wants to set the table for Pietrangelo's deal, so that it becomes Subban's + $xM, and his agency gets their cut of even more tens of millions. Carbonneau sounds clueless, and RDS is silly, is about all that link shows?
