As for him getting a raise or whether the Habs should have signed him long term already, I have a feeling that the bridging contract helped make him the player that he is and the fact that the Habs have a Norris caliber player for two years (in a cap world) at $2.875M per season is a steal. When his new contract is up, Markov's $5.75M will be off the books.

I'm very happy for PK as he deserves it. He's the one who put in the effort to become this much improved player. He's the one who listened to his coaching staff by not trying to do it all himself this past season and he has improved his all-around game. Hater are going to hate and that's fine. The fact remains that Subban was one of the, possibly THE best defenseman this year.
