Do the NY Yankees get players cheaper just because they are generous and loved by agents?? Not at all, in fact they have to pay more than other teams. Ditto for the Rangers before the cap.
It's not about it being a grudge, it's about remembering..and coming to collect when the time comes. For Subban to take such a ridiculously low offer, it would be implied that they would have to make up for it when the time comes.
