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.
I would be happy with a 4.5 2-year deal even if it means paying PK 6-7 M long term after that. I hope his weekend reflexion comes to the same conclusion. I also hope MB is not balking at that number for a two year deal. PK has earned that.
