I doubt he takes the hometown discount after the last negotiations. He needs to decide if he want to win though. Teams that tie too much money up in 1 or 2 contracts have a hard time paying the supporting cast what their worth. We can afford to pay him and Vanek the big money. We can even replace Gionta and Markov (I hope he signs here) next year. It's the following years that are tough. Gallagher and Galchenyuk will be up for big raises. We may not like DD but, he's actually pretty good value for the the money. Agree or disagree whether he should be a top line center, but he's cheaper than most for his production. Patches is on a great contract. It's when those contracts end we'll be hurt by a big Subban contract.
