The OEL contract is a good deal for the Coyotes and for OEL. Subban for his next contract will probably be at $6m maybe $6,5m. I wonder if he's annoyed that the Habs wouldn't sign him long term. I don't see it affecting the next contract negotiation. I think Subban signs - maybe even if this off-season.
6 years/5.5 M per year extension for OEL with Phoenix.
Good contract, and he will be an impact player for PHX for a long time. Was a fan of his when he was drafted and thought he would be a special player. I like to root for the Yote's as I see them as the underdog of the NHL. Glad to see them get the cornerstone of their franchise locked up.
