Doughty has the same agency representing him as Subban, so this will likely not be resolved until Subban gets a long term deal in the range he wants.
On RDS, his agent said that he advised PK taking a short term deal now is better. It's up to PK now to decide whether or not to follow his agents' advice. I think eventually, Montreal will sign him because with Kaberle and Markov all past their prime and quite injury prone, they can't afford to mess around on their blue line right now. Plus here's a guy that's not shy about the spotlight or the pressure of playing in MTL.

Actually...

P.K. Subban - Montreal Canadiens - Situational Statistics - NHL - Yahoo! Canada Sports

Just in Boston's Arena, he's already -8.
Which is by far his worst +/- stat in any arena.

so unless he completely dominates Boston on home games.....

I've never understood this. I know Montreal likes him because he's always on TV and seems like a cool guy outside of hockey, but hes barely top 30 in the league.
Subban is trying to cash in on his upside, like Hall and Eberle did this offseason.

You smoking something good. Why would the habs want Lu and Price? Why would gillis want Subban when our top 4 d are signed long term on homer deals with NTCs, esp since Subban wants more money than what we just gave Edler and a long term

The other side to that, if he thinks he's all that, why doesnt he sign a 2-3yr fair current value contract, hit his potential, then cash in huge on his next deal.

36 points, big physical game, quick skater, a little bad defensively but he's still young. Plus he's got a rocket of a shot.

And he's still young. He's putting up good point totals and has enormous potential. He hasn't even reached his prime and already 29th? Don't tell me you forgot there are 180 starting D-men in this league.

Toronto fell apart big time tonight.

Looks like Philly played well tonight against the rangers (or rangers had an off night not sure).

As per that last retweet from Jamie Benn's agent, Benn has agreed to terms on a 5 year deal, believed to be worth, $5.25M per year.
Good signing

Well those Jamie Benn rumours could be put to bed. As per Pierre Lebrun, 5 yr, 26.5 mil contract.

Edit. Just beat to it haha. But anyways, he might have made a good fit here.

Did anyone ever think that maybe PK doesnt like it in Montreal? Maybe he cant stand the French since it's very known that the Quebec French are really rude to English speaking Canadians.

This could be Chris Chelios all over again for the Habs if they trade PK.

For this very reason, I would throw an offer sheet at him:

except that someone else publicly stated that he would waive it if he was traded to make way for cory. until bieksa does the same and come out and say that, you can't really lump the two together.
