Haven't been able to keep up with NHL free agency or the draft this offseason, as I have been working so I will be able to afford overpriced Bruins tickets in November. The game will be against the Habs, obviously. I don't know about any other teams, but the Bruins are kinda fucked unless we free up cap space.
I'm just nervously awaiting Subban's signing. With the departures of George's and Gionta, on top of the cap space we had before the end of the season, there's no reason the Habs can't match any offer other teams throw at him, and from everything I've heard and read, Marc Bergervin has 0 intention of letting Subban get away. I wouldn't be surprised by a $8M for 8 year deal, and honestly, would be delighted. Anything under 4 years is not gonna do the habs any favours in the future, with the rate the cap ceiling is rising.
Looks like it's gonna be a one year deal, but he will still be a Restricted free agent next summer if that happens, so I'm not having a nervous break down yet. Just hope this doesn't sour him on the idea of signing a long term deal.
8 years at $9 million cap hit per season. Little steep for the first few years, but will level out once the cap rises over the coming years. A win for Subban on getting paid, and a win for the habs for locking him down long term. Couldn't be happier!
