It is a reasonable position but within the confine of the CBA. I just don’t think that Subban has reached an elite status yet so I think the Canadiens should not completely overlook the fact that he is a RFA with no rights to arbitration. That’s why I agree with Gorges btw.

Plus, as I mentioned, a short terms deal may also be beneficial to Subban: long terms deals sometimes result in a player playing with less urgency. So a short terms contract may help him become the player we all know he can be. And that would lead him to more $$$.

Sadly if Subban wants to bypass the CBA and act as if he was a UFA, he will have to sign an offer sheet or ask for a trade. That’s his rights.


PS Just for the record: I wrote "sadly" because I am a huge fan of PK.
