Which is more than 2.5 per year.
I agree that the goal should be to limit contract sizes. But offering someone far below market value (this is below market value by at least 1/3, even for an RFA deal) and refusing to back off on that when you know the other party is in a weak negotiating position does not lead to a positive long term relationship. Maybe Bergevin can repair it. Who knows. 2 years to find out.
My money is on Subban either getting massively paid, or being moved.
He will only be massively paid if he deserves to be massively paid. If that is the case, so be it. I don't see the issue.
