Subban will still be an RFA in a year and a half.

I'm not sure what Bergevin was thinking on this one either. A longterm deal might have seen Subban overpaid in years one or two, but by the end of it, it'd most likely be thought of as a bargain, which would also coincide with a Habs team looking to compete for the cup. And on top of that, the hardline stance could alienate Subban to a level where in the next round of negotiations, he refuses to give any sort of home town discount. And with cap circumvention contracts no longer allowed, Subban's next cap hit, assuming he pans out, could be in the same league as Doughty's.
