The idea of signing a player long term to increase his value is a myth, especially for a RFA. The team that will want to get him will be more thatnhappy to be able to negotiate themselves with the player for the contract they want.


Long terms deals are scary (especially for less fortunate teams) unless the player is Malkin, Crosby or Stamkos, hell look at Ovechkin now....

5 millions isn't that much a discount to increase Subban value, it's Erik Karlsson money...
