He said that he is a new GM and he has not had enough time to evaluate Subban's talents, he wants to know if Subban is a genuine professional or not. This is the same or approximately the same offer as last summer.

- Subban and Bergevin are 2-3 million apart. That means Subban wants between 4.55 million and 5.55 million per year. We know that Subban prefers a long-term deal but is willing to sign a short-term deal if it is at fair market value.

- We know that Subban's value based on comparables is around 4-5 million a year:
Cam Fowler, Anaheim, 5 years @ 4 million per
Tyler Myers, Buffalo, 7 years @ 5.5 million per
Drew Doughty, Los Angeles, 8 years @ 7 million per
Marc Staal, New York Rangers, 5 years @ 3.975 million per
Erik Karlsson, Ottawa, 7 years @ 6.5 million per
Luke Schenn, Philadelphia, 5 years @ 4.5 million per
Victor Hedman, Tampa Bay, 5 years @ 4 million per
Alexander Edler, Vancouver, 4 years @ 3.25 million per
John Carlson, Washington, 6 years @ 3.9 million per
Mike Green, Washington, 4 years @ 5.25 million per
Michael Del Zotto, New York, 2 years @ 2.75 million per
Thanks for this. This thread has been moving way too fast and I have no idea what's going on any more .
