You are looking at it the wrong way.

It is not nor should it be an either or Vanek or Subban. It should be a concerted effort to sign both.

The Habs with Subban and minus Vanek has been an average team incapable of winning a Cup.

The Habs with Subban and Vanek take a huge step forward in winning a Cup. And if it takes giving Vanek more than Subban per year, then so be it. Vanek is a very high impact player......more so than Subban because of the generation of additional offense....one of our biggest struggles earlier in the season.
