Subban To Seek Doughty Money?

Seems crazy to me as I don't consider them to be on the same level but this is what I came across this morning:

http://www.torontosun.com/2013/01/08...-season-starts

Quote:
There was talk in Montreal on Tuesday the Subban camp could be looking for a deal similar to that signed by Los Angeles Kings defenceman Drew Doughty, who landed an eight-year deal worth $56 million. That sounds like a pretty lofty demand.

One player agent said it is going to be crazy, when the flag drops and the window to sign players opens with the ratification of the new CBA.
Thoughts on this?

In my mind Subban was't worth Doughty money before the new CBA and he surely isn't worth it in a slightly reduced cap world either.

I agree with you but if he is the dynamic first pairing D he is portrayed as by Montreal fans then he absolutely should get the same contract as Doughty.

There are some Montreal fans who believe he is a "generational talent". Time to put your money where your mouth is.

I'm as big a Subban fan as a Bruin fan can be, but that's a crazy high amount. I kinda hope it's true so he leaves Montreal. But then again, facing him in a Canadiens uniform is so much fun...

Seems unlikely that he is truly seeking that much, though.

Highly unlikely its reported that money hasn't been an issue, the problem is term, Habs like to give guys coming off ELC 2 years deals before getting a long term deal, and Subban is looking for a 4-5 year term. That has been the sticking point, not money, so I doubt that he wants that type of money and term already.

I hope Bergevin keeps to his guns, a 4 year deal would be horrible, takes up only RFA years, and makes him a UFA at 27.

Even Scott Howson wouldn't be dumb enough to sign him at those terms.

He's more likely to get Darren Dreger money.

Why would his agent allow him to lose at least a full year of $$$ asking for money he will never get ?

I'm sure his agent is seeking that kind of deal. The job of an agent is to get his client the best deal possible.

Subban's agent requests 8 years/56 million, Bergevin offers 4 years/16 million, they probably meet somewhere in the middle.

Subban wants 7M\yr (Doughty money)... MTL is probably offering him 5M\yr

They'll settle for 6M\yr ala Hall and Eberle and call it a day.

He is obviosly seeking BIG payday.

If his demands were reasonable, Montreal would have signed him before the lockout.... clearly he wants to cash in.

This sounds as outlandish as the report that Bergevin low-balled Subban only to be denied by Bergevin, Subban and Meehan.

Highly doubt it

I'm not sure why ppl think its a question of money, because its clearly seems to be about term. Subbans want a 2 year deal to keep him an RFA when the contract is up, ex Price, Patches, while Subban wants a long term deal so that he is a UFA when the deals is up, so that even if he re-signs with the Habs, its going to be for UFA market price.

There was an article just a few days ago by TVA Sports (french media) that confirmed that the issue is term not money but I can't seem to find it anymore.

not a rumour if it comes from the Sun.......the proper term is preverification or is that preverication

never quite sure!
