Your theory about no one getting paid big bucks unless they prove it goes out the window with the Desharnais and Price signings and with the fact that Bergevin in the Cole trad stated that in a cap world, every dollar counts.

Subban was on the verge of breaking out, we all knew it (well most of us did). We had the opportunity to get him at a discount and we missed the boat.

I wonder how much this has to do with a "philosophy" and how much of it had to do with Bergevin and Therrien's confidence in Subban's ability...especially when you take into account the discourse around Subban that Therrien and Bergevin created at the beginning of the year about how "Subban has to learn how to be a team player", "I want to make Subban into a man"..."we want Subban to put the team first"..."he still has a lot to prove"
