Personally, I doubt that Subban falls into the former category. It's a risk I would be willing to take.
Agreed. All contracts have their risks. At some point, you have to take a chance in order to get some players. Sometimes it works, other times, not so much. But if you don't ever make a move, you'll always come out empty handed.
