Give him the choice to be the first person to raise the Cup in 20 years for the Habs or make $12m more.

If he chose the C & $6.5m, he would be the next Saint in Montreal.
Ha ha ha! That's not how it works, unfortunately.

Subban's agent doesn't care about a letter on a jersey, so he takes the first contract.

However, I totally agree with you about the money vs. maximizing your chances of winning a cup.

If we talk AHL numbers, I'd rather have 90k and crappy linemates vs. 60k and a better linemate. The extra 30k is your pension fund, basically.

But in the NHL? The money is ridiculous anyway. I'd rather have 6M with a contender than 9M and crappy linemates.

It's not like you can actually spend all of that money on useful stuff.
