It also means unless Subban has a completely underwhelming season. He'll demand Karlsson money. He might even go higher to make up for taking less, as he has no reason to do us any favors. I guarantee teams will line up to offer sheet him if we attempted the hardball strategy again, and they won't shy away from $7-8 Million.

If MB gets Subban signed for $6M or less, it's a genius. If not, this was a mistaken, but nothing overly bad per se.

As for Emelin. Just call up Tinordi or Beaulieu and considered it done. Despite the going impression here, Emelin is not a stable on the roster and can be replaced. I love the guy, but to be honest, he has been rather sluggish and a mess defensively the last few games. I have no qualms giving either of the aforementioned rookies an opportunity to shine, although I favor Beaulieu.
