Why waste the free cap space in 2 years by giving Subban an even bigger contract rather than signing him now? His value is only going to go up. It could be the difference of an extra million or so.

We aren't winning the cup in the next year or so. Might as well focus on making a big free agent splash in a few years..which would be easier with Subban locked in long term now.
