from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
P.K. Subban. Thomas Vanek. Andrei Markov. Brian Gionta.
The Montreal Canadiens will have some key decisions to make in the upcoming off-season regarding these four players, among others.
Over to you, Marc Bergevin.
In trying to deal with the heartache of his Habs season-ending 1-0 defeat at the hands of the New York Rangers on Thursday, the Canadiens general manager will quickly have to turn his attention to the cache of off-season business that awaits him.
Priority No. 1 should be to get Subban, a restricted free agent, inked to a long-term deal, one that likely will be in the $8.5 million-$10 million US range. True, Subban was not as dominant in the Eastern Conference final as he was in the first two rounds, but the Habs would not have gotten this far without the young franchise blueliner. And don’t forget that he has only just turned 25.
