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.
He earned it in 11-12 when he was playing #1 d man on this team effectivly. But seems like his performances were overshadowed by team sucking ass, managment and coaching changes, and the concerns of our "leaders" in gio and georges about PKs "attitude problems".
But yea i guess PK magically "earned" a 3x raise over 40 some games... Makes sense.
