Furthermore, Doughty didn't have to sign a ridiculously undervalued bridge contract like Subban; he got that contract after his ELC. It's 2014, not 2010 so I'm not sure what the Vancouver olympic team has anything to do the matter. Face it, PK is going to get paid and paid handsomely, either by the Habs or one of the other 29 teams in the league.
Pietrangelo is the closest comparison for PK, Subban will get a touch more for having to do a bridge deal, I predict 8 yrs $58MM $7.25AAV

Hopefully MB and the other GMs use the cap going up to upgrade the middle level players (3rd line/D pairings) and not just overpay the stars and fill out rosters with minor leaguers
