Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
There are rumours the two sides are having all sorts of trouble reaching a long-term deal, and Meehan didn't throw cold water on that theory in his radio interview. Maybe the solution is a shorter deal that gives both sides another shot at this when Subban is 29 or 30, still in prime earning years for a defenceman.
While Meehan added that Subban hasn't "instructed us to attend to" making Subban the NHL's highest-paid blue-liner (Weber's $7.8M average annual value is tops), Canadiens fans are getting increasingly nervous. That fatalism grew when Subban told The National Post he's thought about the idea of playing for his hometown Maple Leafs.
"It's far too soon to have any thoughts," of Subban leaving Montreal, Meehan said. "We have a long period of time before P.K. becomes a UFA and really our objective is to concentrate our best efforts in trying to reach a settlement with Montreal on a long-term contract."
It's interesting watching Bergevin and Subban. The GM has shown he's unafraid to make bold moves, whether the fans support him or not. So far, he's been very successful. But Subban is also fearless. He believes 100 per cent he's going to accomplish everything he wants, no matter who stands in his way.
