The very least they could do is offer him a 2 yr 8.5M contract, buy out Kaberle in the summer and one hand washes the other. If the numbers floating around are to believed the Habs simply aren't being fair to Subban at all.
I'm 100% with you on this. I friggin' can't stand when policy becomes dogma and an organization refuses to adapt. How hard is it to acknowledge that other organizations have had more success with their investments than we have? How hard is it to admit your policies haven't worked and adopt policies that have worked? What the hell is wrong with the Habs?
