Not a real smart way to deal with a player you're counting on for the future.
I'm not sure they're counting on him for the future.

They have Markov, Gorges, Emelin, Diaz, up front; and last summer there were those reports saying they wanted to find out how good Beaulieu and Tinordi could become before deciding how to incorporate Subban into their plans.

It may be that they're hedging their bets, that they're hoping both Beaulieu and Tinordi succeed so that they no longer need Subban, because they don't want Subban.

I think Morgan Ellis is also making a case for himself as a solid prospect, though the media never talks about him.
