That's a pretty arrogant statement. PK is pretty much my favorite player but I wouldn't have wanted him signed to a 6-7 plus million dollar longterm deal before last season, I don't buy that they could have locked him up for 5 million either.
Obviously I am not a fan of these long term deals that pay the player on future potential, look at how bad Price gets reamed over the coals, and guys like Tyler Myers etc. I knew PK was going to be a superstar and he would get paid like it one day, and he just proved that he is worth it.
All I know is I was happy with the deal at the time and still happy because Subban won a Norris and we know he earned big money. Too many chicken littles here that think this is going to become a problem because as it has been shown time and time again, the salary cap can be managed in one way or another.
