Sorta. First year is worth 2M, and he'll get about 1M because it'll be pro rated to a half season. Second season in 3.75M. He won't starve, it's a slight underpayment in dollar terms (for the 2nd year), quite an underpayment for this year though. The structure of the deal allows Subban to get a higher qualifying offer after the deal's over as well. Advantages to back loading it.
