That is an assumption. You don't know that.
He played #1 minutes last year because they didn't have a choice. And he led the team in minutes yes, but led them to last place in the conference. You have to look at it from a team perspective. If he was playing for the Kings, or for any playoff team for that matter do you think he would have been a #1 D?
The problem is pretty clear. People think PK has nothing left to prove and that he's elite. He isn't, yet. He's young, and still has a lot to learn and prove, not just on the defensive side of things either.
Having said that, I would say he has the most raw talent among the defensemen the Habs have. He is an above average skater, puck handler, works his ass off, is physical and I love the enthusiasm and excitement he brings.
But to suggest that he's proven that he's put that all together into being an established #1 D in this league already is premature.
I'm confident they'll find common ground and sign.
