And yeah, you can call it a missed opportunity, but it was an opportunity traded. You gave up the $1.5-$2M in cap for more guaranteed years in his prime and to stick to what I think is a smart organizational philosophy. That's my take.
It only worked because Subban played along and didn't call Bergevin's bluff.

Subban should of been playing in Europe instead of playing tv commentator on sportsnet and then it would of been a lot easier for Subban to say, " thanks for the offer but I think I'll stay here". Or, Subban could of listened to other teams make their offer sheet pitches.
