We know that Bergevin is offering 2.55 million.

So therefore, the mathematically literate among us know that Subban's camp expects 4.55-5.55 million per year.
Which would be a bargain if he signs a long term deal. This 2 year bridge garbage should be used when the situation warrants it not a hard and fast rule for every player coming off an entry level contract. The kid is a bonafide top two d-man coming off a season where he had to carry the load with Markov gone. He's ahead of the curve at this point. If we sign him now for two years he'll be wanting more than 5 mil the next time his contract expires. This whole situation makes no sense to me whatsoever.
