Bergevin gave Subban a contract based on what he had earned up to that point in his career, instead of giving him a contract based on potential, which is what lots of other GMs are giving in to with their young players these days, and some of them end up getting burned big time when those players don't reach their potential. I just don't get why MB is getting flamed for this contract. Its very easy to say that Subban was worth more money now, after a Norris-winning season.
I don't think it will be a problem paying Subban what he deserves now that he has actually earned it.
Don't bother, you're wasting your time. They have it in their mind that Subban was beat up to submission like a poor boy. Nothing will change their mind. We know it takes two to tango.
