So if subban gets 6mil per on 6 years this year were does that put petro.
I'm thinking 5.5mil per on 6 years and Shattenkirk gets 3.6mil on 6 years
Maybe we should just offer Subban 6 years 28.8mil/4.8 mil a year if he takes then we have a good defenseman and we keep petro's in check and shattenkirks around 3mil.
Maybe I'm really not thinking this through though lol
If Subban gets 6 million per season Bergevin is an idiot. The kid is a good player and he will improve, but he has some real warts in his defensive game. I wouldn't give him more than 5 million per myself.
Alex Edler is a much better player than Subban and he signed a long term deal for 5 million per. I realize he is 3 years older than PK but I know who I would rather have and it isn't me being a biased fan.
The Blues are going to have to come out of their shoes to sign Pieterangelo. He has franchise player written all over him. I would be shocked if he doesn't pick up a couple Norris trophies over the next decade. Knowing what we now know about the 08 draft I don't know how he doesn't go first overall , though Stamkos or even Doughty would be a decent consolation prize.
To pay him that much, we'd have to let someone go. I can't see Stillman ponying up money all across the board to keep who we got on the roster, as it stands. So who do we lose to trades or lack of money? Backes? Halak?
If that becomes the game, eventually we'll be asking the same question when Tarasenko's contract comes up too, especially if he performs the way everyone is expecting him to.
So what do we do?
