I would only see this happen if an elite winger comes back, like a Corey Perry (trade and sign). The Oilers could be be a good fit too with their glut of wingers.
This is exactly what PK and his agent want to see. I would imagine that they expect that all habs fans think the same way.
You are comparing a 23 year old relatively unproven, defenseman, with an already inflated ego and self-worth to a Stanley cup winning, gold medal winning, Rocket Richard and ART Ross winner as a comparable value. Which is quite funny because Perry's contract was a 5.325 cap hit.
No one can know absolutely what he will evolve into but anyone can see what he has done. Doughty's contract was signed under the old CBA and I am quite confident Doughty was more highly touted than Subban. It seems to me that PKs biggest fan is PK.
PK is much more comparable to MDZ or Kulikov, wjho have both signed bridge contracts at realistic values.
I hope Montreal succumbs to the pressure and signs a big, bloated, unmanageable contract and that PKs ego is more dominant than his play on the ice. It would be a good lesson for GMs.
If you want him to sign a realistic deal stop with the ridiculous comparisons.
