- Comment on (AUDIO) Subban signs eight-year deal with Habs averaging $9 million a season (2014-08-02 17:49:03)
Ian, One would think if an email was sent to PK, he would honor a true Habs Fan who lives, dies for a Stanley Cup to come to Montreal. Maybe the inside people could start the process and Alex would be his friend for life as his favorite Habs player. Get er done!!
- Comment on Habs’ Subban expects arbitrator to decide on his contract (2014-08-02 09:26:11)
I'm not sure IF this will assist many on this site on PK Subban being the lowest paid in career earnings to his peers on D. This is according to capgeek.com and here are a few examples; Name, Team, Age, Years in NHL and total earnings to date. S. Weber (Nas) Age 28 9 Yrs = $64,831,000 R. Suter (Min) Age 29 9 Yrs = $51,356,000 J. Bouwmeester (Stl) Age 32 11 Yrs = $50,940,630 D. Phaneuf (Tor) Age 29 9 Yrs = $49,356,000 D. Keith (Chi) Age 31 9 Yrs = $45,771,000 D. Hamhuis (Van) Age 31 9 Yrs = $32,781,740 D. Doughty (Lak) Age 24 6 Yrs = $28,825,000 K. Letang (Pit) Age 27 8 Yrs = $23,680,000 E. Karlsson (Ott) Age 24 5 Yrs = $19,625,000 A. Pietrangelo (Stl) Age 24 6 Yrs = $14,700,000 PK Subban (Mon) Age 25 5 Yrs = $8,375,000 That's what happen when MB low bridge a contract and NOW has to ante up. IMO, Subban is in line for a hefty raise. Show me the money GM. Hope this helps?

IMO, Still waiting to see what was offered during this four hour talks. One has to figure a deal will be in place before 48 hours are up? If not, its going to be very interesting if PK stays here for long term when he reaches UFA status? Just hoping things will work it self out and they come to anl agreement on a new contract.

MT fits the bill? He has a tight leash on PK. LOL

If a deal is not reached today? One has to figure it has to do with the dollar amount Subban's agent is asking for or MB is playing low ball again? Just have to wait and see where this is leading to? Hope a deal gets done today??? Wonder how the relationship with MT and Subban will play out this coming year? IMO, PK should be able to take his game to another level. Look at Karlsson, Letang, Doughty and Keith be able to play a offensive game by going end to end. Why can Subban be able to free wheel when opportunity exist? Just my two cents worth!!
- Comment on Subban, Habs submit salary figures; Lacroix new assistant coach (2014-07-31 09:07:48)
IF PK Subban was allowed to play a 200 foot game, you would see a big difference in his game. MT needs to turn him loose and let him take the game to another level. Until that is allowed, we ONLY can see Subban play the coach's way. Just for argument sake!! Where will the Habs place IF Subban decides to sit out for a year? Your thoughts?

Good stuff!! Me thinks he Habs will go with skill and if need be to have an enforcer MB will find one to fillin from time to time. What do you think of these lines combo's? Make changes as you see fit!! Pacioretty - Desharnais - Gallagher Markov - Subban Galchenyuk - Eller - Parenteau Emelin - Gilbert Bourque - Plekanec - Sekac/Bournival Beauliea - Weaver Prust - Malhotra - Weise Price Budaj Spares - Moen - Tinordi

Just throwing this out there? For an enforcer and I don't know if he is available? Might be playing in KNL? Evgeny Artyukhin might fillin as a heavyweight?
