Even as PK Subban. It's a good deal and don't think a long-term deal was any good for him.
Give me 4 million next year. I kick ass, and I prove I'm worth 5-6 next deal.
He's not going to ask for 2-3 more next time around. He's going to ask for 4-5 more.

As for the RISK that you're talking about... MB is very lucky that PK didn't just walk away. THAT was a risk (and an unnecessary one at that.)

And we are going to get killed next time. Count on it.
