We might be able to get him around 6 M per year if we sign him this summer after Subban proved himself over 40 games.
Every dollar counts in a cap system.
If Subban finds himself in a position to ask for 7M$ in July 2014, it would imply that we have a 7M$ D man in our lineup; good news if you ask me! Based on your example, at this point in time, I am willing to sacrifice this 1M$ to make sure (incentive factor, less pressure) that Subban reaches this 7M$ D man status.
This 1M$ is also an insurance policy in case, highly improbable imo but not impossible, Subban regresses during the upcoming season.
From my point of view, those extension talks can wait until January 2014.
