Habs offer Subban two-year deal

Quote:
The Montreal Canadiens and restricted free agent defenceman P.K. Subban are still in negotiations over a new contract, as RDS reports that the team has offered him a two-year deal worth about $5.5 million.

RDS adds that both sides are still far apart as Subban's camp is looking for a longer term.

Even an RFA dman needs to get a bigger cap hit than 2.75 M if he's a no1 lol.

Way way way under-payment.

I would be pissed/embarrassed if I was Subban, he is the Habs best/most consistent d-man and has a bright future, what a low-ball offer.

They meet this week for the first time, so I'm guess its the first offer, it settles at 2 years for 3.5M is my guess.

One thing you can bet on tho, Habs will not go for more than a 2 year deal.

Habs sign all there players to 2 year deals after their ELC

Price, Patches, Desharnais, Eller, Daiz, Emelin, Weber, all got 2 year deals.

I'm guessin Subban would want a 4 year deal, to eat up all his RFA years, but Habs would be dump to do that.

How is it so dumb to sign your future #1 d-man long term?

Same offer than Price got after this ELC. Low? Yes. Lowball? Absolutely not.

4 years takes him to UFA, and Subban, as much as he is a fan favorite, is going to cash in.

It's always less than ideal to sign a guy you want to keep around to a deal that sends him straight to his first possible summer of unrestricted free agency. Either make it really long-term (which PK probably has little interest in given what the Habs are probably willing to pay based on what he's been able to prove to this point), or make it a deal that takes him to restricted free agency still, leaving you with more leverage to strike a long-term deal then.

Its a bridge contract. Erik Johnson got $5.2M over 2 years as a bridge contract in 2010. The $5.5M over 2 years is a good offer for Subban.

He's coming off his ELC, 2 years is right but I expect it to be about 7.5 million.

Actually I'm curious as to why PK would be pursuing a long-term deal rather than 2 yrs (obviously at a bigger cap hit). Let's say he gets a 2 yr at 3.5 then after that he can cash in and get paid like an actual no1 like Myers or Doughty or Karlsson.

Hoping for something around 5MM for 4 years. Think this gives us one year of rfa services.

I think he wants a long term deal in the sense of a 4 year deal, not the new type of long term deals that are 8+ years.

If he gets a 4 year contract, he would be able to be a UFA at that point, and even if he plans to re-sign with the Habs at that point, they need to pretty much overpay to keep him if it gets to that point.

Don't care what any of you are saying, this is an extremely low offer.
