Cap will be tight next year and Subban is a deal. Cap won't be tight the year after due to Gio and Marky possibly being off the books, and the cap going back up.

Whether people want to admit it or not, whether they agree with it or not, whether they argue their point until they're blue in the face, it doesn't change the fact that Bergevin's decision was fully justifiable and that's what we're saying.
He missed the boat and it is clear that it's no longer opinion but fact. Subban won the Norris. He now will command higher than he did last offseason.

It would of been tighter, but Cube didn't need 1.5, DD didn't deserve 3.5 after the pathetic year he had. (He played 2 NHL seasons, 1 was great, the other was sub par 1 year 2 million is what he should of got, prove himself again).

Keep believe that because this is what happened, that is was the best way. It clearly isn't.
