Your logic is bad. You assume being RFA gives you the right to low-ball him until he reaches UFA status. Truth is, when you have a star talent, you lock him up long term and pay him his true worth. Look at what Benn got. I'd be impressed if you could find any Stars fan complaining right now.

"Oh noes, he's so overpaid! Should have traded him for Strome and Reinhart!!!!"

Give me a break. Subban is worth his 5M and should be paid accordingly. Give him his long term contract and call it a day. The longer this drags out, the worst it will get for Subban coming back into the team, and the lower his trade value gets. Just get it over with.
