Right, Galchenyuk won't get a pay cut, but if he gets back-to-back 70 point seasons and they offer him a long-term rather than a 2-year bridge contract, then there's a double standard.

A lot of people are saying we need to underpay Subban so that we can underpay Galchenyuk, Tinordi, etc.

IMO those posters have a loser mentality. I am all for paying Tinordi, Beaulieu, etc 5 million a year if they earn it. I would be 100% ecstatic to see them get 5 million dollar/year paychecks if they earn it as Subban has earned it.
