His cap hit will indeed be greater and more money will be spent, but he's earned it. To top it off, we can sign him for as much as 6 of his UFA years which pretty much includes the majority if not all of his prime years.

How was this not the right decision?
If Subban signs an offer sheet to play elsewhere maybe you'll see things differently. Oh, he won't because that isn't in the script.
