Firstly...i'm uncomfortable

Secondly...again, if the Habs manage to get Subban signed to a 2 year bridge contract at below value, it means that next negotiation, they're going to have to 'compensate' for the tremendous value they've had him at ove the course of what will be his 5 year career at that point

He won't have to put up a Norris season to get paid then...you can print that

Again...TODAY, Subban's value on the open market is AT THE VERY LEAST 4.5M, and i'm being extremely conservative here.

2 years from now, based on Subban's development curve...6.5M is not going to get it done

that's the cold truth...and its why I find it so perplexing that MB is dead set on signing him to a 2 year deal, it seems extremely short sighted.
