You're dense aren't you. All the insiders were saying that the two parties could not come to an agreement on cap and term. It was state multiple times that Subban was looking for a longer term deal at 4.5 million, this is what sparked the debate on these boards for months until he signed. There is no wishful thinking, just you being dense and pretending that this issue never occured. There was a hold out because the two parties fundamentally disagreed on all aspects of the contract.
