Just thought I'd bump this thread to illustrate the cost-comparisons of Subban's bridge deal v. the 5-year deal he could have/should have signed. The chart shows two cost-comparisons -- the first at the end of the five-year deal many hoped he'd sign, the second at the end of the eight-year deal we're hoping he'll sign.

These numbers are estimates, naturally, but assuming they're close, the total cost is almost the same for both scenarios. Whether Subban was locked into a five-year deal back in January, or whether he's about to be offered a big new contract for the maximum term starting next season, there's barely a difference to the Habs revenue when played out over that span of 10 years. Of course, that assumes we intend to offer Subban a long contract and that he ends up accepting.
