Not sure pissing off one of your best players is a good idea.

We could have nickeled and dimed Karlsson on his contract, but we paid him what he was worth and kept a good relationship with him. You treat your best players well, and they will have loyalty to your organization.

Sure Montreal might have saved some money for the next two seasons, but what happens once Subban hits UFA status? What guarantee do they have they he doesn't hold a grudge and go somewhere else?
