Don't be sorry. Whatever you, me or any other fan thinks is completely irrelevant. The only relevant pieces in this game are Mr. Molson, Mr. Bergevin, PK and his agent.

They just enjoy making us sweat. I think a deal will still get done. The more I think about it the less confident I am it will be for the max 8 years though.

PK and agent might be thinking a 5 year deal at 8 or 8.5 might be the best deal for PK. He will be 30 after that deal and still in his prime and can then demand another huge contract to take him close to retirement. The cap is only going up so in five years he could be looking at 8 years 12 million per. If he signs the max term of 8 years he will be 33 and just exiting his prime and will have less bargaining power. No?

I'm really surprised this isn't done yet. I was expecting a 3 p.m. announcement. On well, still think it will be done before 6 p.m.

- Comment on Subban, Habs submit salary figures; Lacroix new assistant coach (2014-07-30 19:32:40)
Tomorrow at about noon the media will receive word that the Habs will hold a presser at 3 p.m. During the presser Mr. Bergevin will announce that the Montreal Canadiens and PK Subban have come to an agreement on a new contract for 8 years and 72 million dollars. Obviously all speculation but this is what I am going with...

Great points Adidess. I hope they decide on Subban for captain down the road then. Maybe training camp.

It's going to be a massive ticket; the biggest in Habs history. My only questions are will the announcement be made during an official presser and will PK walk out and sit next to Mr. Bergevin in a Habs jersey with a "C" on it? And, no not the C in the CH but the other C as in captain.
- Comment on Eller agrees to four-year, $14-million deal with Habs (2014-07-24 20:27:55)
Ya, I was on the TSN site for a while too. It seems mostly like jealous Leaf fans that are making the negative comments. It's understandable when the biggest thing their organization has done so far this summer was to sign a 28 year old stats geek as their assistant GM. Not a single respectable UFA wanted to sign there this summer. It's got to hurt a bit.
- Comment on Leaving Habs was ‘family decision’ for Brisebois (2014-07-24 15:20:24)
Nice. Well deserved for Eller. Now just trade DD for a bag of pucks and have - Galchenyuk, Pleks and Eller down the middle and we will be all set.
