If a player starts at18 in the NHL. He will become a free agent at a ripe age.
i rly hate hearing people bring up the UFA thing when all bergevin has to do is offer a contract extenstion to the kid 1 year before he ever even has to test free agency and people act like it wont happen
With Diaz on the Top 4 and PK signed, I think we have a pretty good defensive core, just as long someone tells Therrien to not overplay Bouillon
I'm hoping they keep Emelin with Markov at ES, and Diaz with Markov on the PP. Gorges with Subban at ES and on the PK, and maybe a forward overload with Subban on the PP point, or Kaberle I suppose. I see two good pairings, but that third pairing has to offer more than Kabouillon to get anywhere imo.
I don't like the whole "ACCEPT OUT 2 YEAR 3 MILLION DOLLAR OFFER" approach either. Right now it's a polarization approach by both sides. Subban is asking for too much money but Bergevin is being down right disrespectful.
True, but I still think that if P.K. was reasonable he would have signed already.

It hurts me every time I see him in that ugly jersey... I'm feeling the same towards Plekanec TBH.
