While reports that Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban was offered $5.5 million over two years by the Habs have yet to be completely confirmed (via Yahoo! Sports), one thing is for certain: He deserves more.
Subban may not yet be an elite defenseman at the NHL level, and he may have his share of flaws, but all things considered, he may very well end up of being Montreal’s most valuable player this year.
Granted, following last year’s debacle, standards are relatively low, and he may not have to break the bank in terms of production to achieve that goal. All the same, general manager Marc Bergevin may end up having to break the bank to keep Subban around.
Here are five reasons that the Habs’ reported offer of $5.5 million is not fair enough compensation for Subban.
