We aren't spending anything until Gomez and Kaberle are off the books, and we have a few more free agencies coming up soon, like Desharnais.

We don't know how much Subban is asking for. But if he is willing to take 5 for 5 or whatever..how is that a bad thing? All he needs to do is break the 40 point barrier and you can guarantee he will ask for Doughty money if he's lowballed right now. Penny wise and dollar foolish.
exactly .it makes no sense because we may save a bit now but we will pay dearly later.in the end it will all be the same,except going this route we piss off one of our brightest young d men we ve had in a long long time.really i cant wait to hear mb's explanation of this situation.
