I don't understand how this hasn't been done yet, surely at this point since Subban basically got whipped and took a fair deal with the Habs (probably less than he should have got) that ROR would take the fair deal and move on and play NHL hockey.
I don't think the Avs should or will just collapse and overpay the hell out of him due to the injuries and bad PK lately.. though he has to know he'd improve this team dramatically as soon as he signed.. so it's a tough situation.
In the end it's a billionaire paying a millionaire and the fans are losing out, remind you of something that just ended? It sucks.
Does anyone know where I can find a full copy of the new CBA? I'm not sure if it's completely finalized yet, but it'd be nice to have a copy again.
There's nothing published on the web, which is why I don't think Dater knows what he is talking about. Just completely irresponsible reporting on his part to get everyone worked up. We have a #*$((@ idiot as a beat writer in this city.
My apologies didn't see it - I havent been able to spend very much time on here lately.
Anyways, I think all the cards are held by the Colorado Avalanche here. If the Sherminator signs this kid to a $4M/year deal for 3 years, we'll be kissing the ground Sherm walks on rather than throwing him under the bus.
Hell, if anything this whole episode assures me that we won't be extending Paul Stastny at $6.5M/per, which makes me happy.
