If you give Subban the big contract this year then the Canadiens will be hamstrung regarding the cap once again.

This team still has needs to be filled. With or without Subban, we still need a physical stay at home DMan. We need improvements over Bourque. Cole and Gionta will have to be replaced.

And with Subban's big contract now, Bergevin will be limited as to what he can do to solve those problems.

PK should be able to understand that concept of building a team to compete for a Cup instead of it all being about PK.
Your offer is at least in the ballpark. But in all of your claims that PK needs to take one for team you continually fail to acknowledge that the widely reported team offer is sitting at 2/3 of what you think is fair. I think we could agree that PK accepting 2/7 is already going above and beyond doing what's best for the franchise. Knock $2M more off, this is no longer about the cap, as this offer is obviously completely out of line with Subban's value to the team.

Habs can give Subban 2 years and 8-9M and not have any issues with the cap. Any further improvements can be made by exchanging Bourque, Kaberle and/or Gionta with younger cheaper and most likely better players
