Not sure where the sides are at right now and gamesmanship is interesting so we'll see what he signs for eventually.
I think the problem is precedent. The Habs have given a number of players the Bogo, wait and see treatment. The problem here is that Subban has clearly earned more.

Subban is already better and more distinguished than their other wait and see players and he is currently better than / more proven than our young Bogo. I fully understand why he wants to be treated as such.
