I don't understand why so many people think it's such a risk to give Subban a long term contract right now?

Regardless of the contract he eventually signs...he's going to step in and play a major role right away. So if you're so worried about giving him a long term deal, how do you justify using him as though he's your #1 dman?

Something just doesn't make sense to me...

It comes across as a bit short sighted to me...just thinking of next years cap as opposed to long term, which is what this organization should be thinking about right now
The 50th highest paid D in the league right now is gorges at 3.9M$ according to capgeek.com

PK is better than Gorges so by my logic, that means he's worth at the very least what gorges got.

PK is not top 50 though, he's easily IMO a top 30, reasoning behind that is that there is atleast one team out there where he would be their number 1 so at the very least he's top 30.

Kronwall and Pitkannen are 29 and 30 on the list making 4.5M

There is no way whatsoever that PK should be making less than 4.5M$
