Kaberle's contract shouldn't be a problem though, the cap doesn't go down until next year and by that point both him and Gomez will be history.

And yes, if the reason they are lowballing Subban is because MB believes we don't have enough cap space, it was poor cap management with Prust. Prust is overpaid, even Rangers fans who love the man think he's overpaid and are happy he wasn't brought back for that price. That doesn't mean he doesn't deserve to be overpaid, he's a guy who can give you an edge, but he's still a guy who should be part of your plans after your best defenseman.

And it's not just Prust, we committed significant money to grinders and role players even under Bergevin. Which is fine, you need the blue collar types to make everything running, but once again, that's not your core. Subban is your core, and only Price and Galchenyuk should be as important as Subban going forward. Those are the guys we have that nobody else has.

And the cap doesn't go down until next year either.
