So Emelin just had a torn ACL, hasn't played all season, and Bergevin signs him this early, at that kind of salary?

Jesus Christ...

And Subban must be loving this deal!!!

I know everyone would be happier with 3.5M annually then 4.1...but that's a 600K difference, when the cap is going up by much more.

walk away from the ledge...
people said that and it did go down in the end, who knows! I'm still mad about the free buyouts, even if it helped us get rid of Gomez.

What a stupid contract, why couldn't you wait for Emelin to return from his injury before giving him an extension...such a pointless risk. I don't mind the money since he's shown progress in his first two seasons and was solid last year before getting injured. We have to take in consideration that the KHL is still an option for him.

Keep the bottom two salaries at 1 mil each and we should be fine.

Great signing by Bergevin, Emelin is worth every cent of the $4.1 mil a year. The Habs defence is so much better with him in the lineup, now for Markov and Subban to ink their new deals. A four year deal for Markov and a long term for Subban can pretty much guarantee a Stanley Cup final three yrs. from now. IMHO!

I like Emelin but that's a terrible contract. 14 mil should've been the very max. And also the timing.... Didn't we learn from DD?

Going to be a lot of money for a guy who could play on our 2nd PP wave but will sit behind Bouillon & Gorges

Yes he is. Closest is Carey Price but lets not forget how he ended the season. With P.K. you know what you're getting.

Well at least now we know why they kept him off the ****ing PP. Emelin would have got league max with offensive numbers.

Then either you overrate a lot of Habs players or never thought highly of Subban.

I really love Emelin, not only was he was a great fit to the D last year, he was a key part, but it's a gamble given the type of injury he had. It could work out well, in the present it's a lot of money though. Hopefully the gamble will pay off like it did with Markov.

He brings something to this team that we lacked for so long and yet people keep on crying that he'll get overpaid by 0.5M! I'll even go and say that his offensive game is underrated. I can see him getting some PP on the 2nd unit behind Subban and Markov.

The cap is also going up next year so what's the big deal here?

He will lowball and use his media connexion to make stupid people believe Subban isnt a team guy etc etc
Just like he did last time when Subban didnt play, he was seen as a traitor and gold digger
