You really think MB was betting against him winning the Norris? No matter what Subban was going to do this year, it was obvious he was going to get a raise
Right that he would be worth more a 25m/5 year contract over the course of the contract.

417 is arguing that 3m doesn't matter, so I'm just wondering if there's a limit, if 3m doesn't matter, does 5m?

He settled for less for the next 2 years (can't recall exact figures)...and next year will likely sign a 7 to 8 year deal that will pay him a minimum of 7M per year.

I know which route I would of rather taken...the one where i'll be making more money
And if this season he gets a skull fracture like Blake Geoffrion, or a concussion like Marc Savard, or any other serious debilitating injury he doesn't get to sign that big lucrative contract at all. If he misses half a season last year to a regular injury he's not looking at a huge payday right now either. By signing long term last season he's giving up potential money for guaranteed money.
