Well for me it comes down to why not discuss a long term deal, why not lock up your best player?

Why didn't MB think to give him an 8 year contract instead of the bridge?

2013 ----------> 4,000,000$ (Age 23 at the start of the season)
2013-2014 ---> 4,500,000$ (Age 24 at the start of the season)
2014-2015 ---> 5,000,000$ (Age 25 at the start of the season)
2015-2016 ---> 6,500,000$ (Age 26 at the start of the season)
2016-2017 ---> 7,000,000$ (Age 27 at the start of the season)
2017-2018 ---> 7,000,000$ (Age 28 at the start of the season)
2018-2019 ---> 7,500,000$ (Age 29 at the start of the season)
2019-2020 ---> 8,000,000$ (Age 30 at the start of the season)

8 year contract, signed before winning the Norris. AAV: 6.1875 M$

2020-2021 ---> 12,000,000$ (Age 31 at the start of the season)
2021-2022 ---> 12,000,000$ (Age 32 at the start of the season)
2022-2023 ---> 12,000,000$ (Age 33 at the start of the season)
2023-2024 ---> 10,000,000$ (Age 34 at the start of the season)
2024-2025 ---> 9,500,000$ (Age 35 at the start of the season)
2025-2026 ---> 6,500,000$ (Age 36 at the start of the season)
2026-2027 ---> 6,000,000$ (Age 37 at the start of the season)
2027-2028 ---> 6,000,000$ (Age 38 at the start of the season)

8 year contract, 35% year to year rule + the 50% of lowest to highest. AAV: 9.25 M$

or we can do something like this:
2020-2021 ---> 12,000,000$ (Age 31 at the start of the season)
2021-2022 ---> 12,000,000$ (Age 32 at the start of the season)
2022-2023 ---> 12,000,000$ (Age 33 at the start of the season)
2023-2024 ---> 10,000,000$ (Age 34 at the start of the season)
2024-2025 ---> 10,000,000$ (Age 35 at the start of the season)

5 year deal. AAV: 11.2 M$

2025-2026 ---> 6,000,000$ (Age 36 at the start of the season)
2026-2027 ---> 5,000,000$ (Age 37 at the start of the season)
2027-2028 ---> 4,000,000$ (Age 38 at the start of the season)
2028-2029 ---> 3,000,000$ (Age 39 at the start of the season)
2029-2030 ---> 3,000,000$ (Age 40 at the start of the season)

5 year deal. AAV: 4.2 M$

Any way you slice it, you can draw whatever you want to explain any situation you want. The problem is in 2014-15 when Subban gets a new deal, the habs will have little space to maneuver if they are in a good position to contend. Everything suggested is so impossible to foresee, except that Subban will be paid more in 2014-2015 because he got a bridge deal instead of at least listening and negotiating a contract. Even if Subban is an RFA next off-season, he still has more bargaining chips than MB.
