If he signs Subban long term than that sets a new standard and imagine what Desharnais or Gallagher or Galchenyuk will demand when its time for them to sign out of their ELC.

The way I see it Subban should except the contract, because he's not getting anything sitting at home and his status will stay the same. Come in show that you really do want to be part of this team and a Hab. Play your ass off, show the new management team your worth the money and who's to say Bergevin doesnt extend him this summer like he did Pacioretty. It seems as though Bergevin prefers to sign players before their contract ends, with Price and Subban he had no choice.
If one of the Gally's becomes as dominant as Subban is they will ask for a big long term contract regardless of what happens with Subban. If we have to go through this all over again with Gally then Bergevin needs to be fired now!

If MB holds firm Subban will likely eventually sign. But what happens then, it's quite likely that when Bergevin tries to extend him, Subban will say no he will go to arbitration and become a UFA as soon as he can.
