That's just stupid.
PK is a top pairing Dman in the NHL, of course he will help this team. Why wouldn't he?? Oh, you believe he's this big evil 23yo kid??
We win more games with PK in the line up, than without. That's a fact, not an opinion.

His presence will give Markov more breathing room. You won't have to use him for 30min, which also decreases his chances of injury and fatigue.
His presence helps in ways you clearly do not comprehend.

He was asked if it was true that he had told Meehan on Friday to expedite the process.

He said

" That sounds like a rumour, I don't listen to rumours, neither does Meehan, neither does Mark"

Hia agent always said that the conversations with Bergevin were always agreable.

More blood was spilled on this board than during the real negotiation between both parties.

We're not considering an insane fan base for nothing.

I'm a Habs fans... But if I'm putting myself in the shoes of his agent, I would have told Subban not to sign the deal. In an free open market, he could have had 6-7+ M/season... I understand he's just an RFA with no arbitration rights, I don't think that means that Subban takes a bit more than 1/3 of his real market value on a two year deal.

We have some of the worst fans in all of sports combined. Embarrassing.

What about Del Zotto who was a 1st rounder ? Del Zotto is better at O and PK better at D.

In that entire cycle I woke up to the Patches news and next time I woke up it was to PK being signed. Early days in Habsville, but they are exciting! Of course, a loss will send us all into bashing mode. I've been around long-enough. Still not as bipolar as the leafs

I think it's easy to look good when you're the top option on a team with no other options.

I'm glad he's signed, but this notion that he's just going to keep a steady incline in performance is misguided. He might, he might not.
That's BS, you know what happens to pretty good but not great defensemen on bad teams? They get asked to do too much and get killed.

Erik Karlsson in 10-11 and Cam Fowler in his first 2 years are the perfect examples. They end up with double digit minuses on the year..

That's the Don Fehr line of thinking....so you would be OK for PK to sit out a whole year and make 0.00??

-McGwire said you had to multiply the years and the salary of Del Zotto by two for Subban's real market value.
-Subban will sell merchandise, give the club huge visibility. Del Zotto doesn't fill one extra seat in your arena.

The total contract value is still low. But hey, if PK's happy, I'm happy. Really don't give a crap.
I was against the bridge contract because PK will likely see his cap hit more than double in 2years. I was for giving him a longer deal now to save cap room in two years.
That was the point.

But like I said, if both parties are happy, let bygones be bygones be bygones, awesome. Let's start kicking some serious ass now.
