It's risky though...if Subban continues to improve at the rate he's improved since he's been drafted (and there's no indication that this isn't very likely to happen), in 2 years, it's going to cost the Habs a whole lot more than it would cost them right now.

If the team is where it's supposed to be 2 years from now...a lot of key players are going to be up for new deals...
