Subban gets his money (RW77)

PK Subban is, to me, an interesting case... and not the only interesting case on the Canadiens.Yesterday, PK Subban signed an 8 year $72 million contract with Montreal.  For the math fans out there, that's a cap hit of $9 million a year. Is this a good or a bad deal?  Fans and analysts alike are already batting around this question.  Ok, so maybe it is because we are now...

Make or Break Time for J.T. Miller?

#493840147 / gettyimages.comI found this article on T.J. Miller to be interesting, maybe because he was committed to UND for a minute, before he bolted for the greener pastures of the OHL. I still think college hockey would have done this kid some good.SNYRangers.com -- Jeff Gorton says that the Rangers organization has “made it clear” to JT Miller what kind of opportunity he...

Canadiens' Subban has Arbitration hearing

#494501227 / gettyimages.comTo tak a quote from Jerry McGuire, "Show me the money."  I predict that's what P.K. Subban is going to be saying. You would have to think that Subban is going to be getting somewhere between seven and 10 million a year. For comparison sake, L.A. Kings defenseman Drew Doughty signed a new five-year contract that pays him seven million...

Herald Opinion: UND should get after a new nickname

#111873157 / gettyimages.comFrom today's local fish wrapper, err, Grand Forks Herald. But what else would you expect from them? I have always said, outside of the sports page, which is awesome, this news paper disappoints me. I have to respectfully disagree with Tom Dennis. There’s really no need to hurry picking a new nickname. Nicknames are something that we’re stuck with...

My Early Preseason NCAA Men's Hockey Favorite

Ok, I know that the season is still two months away, but I just can't get over how this one ended, and not just for North Dakota either. In general, this past season saw a lot of parody and I expect this season to be just the same. We saw a team with just one NHL draft pick win it all, a team beat another in .6 seconds to go to the national title game, but lose and lose badly...

TSN, Subban Seeks $8.5M in Arbitration, Habs Offer $5.25M

#494499967 / gettyimages.comI have been following this story with great interest, I actually can't believe that Subban is locked up with a long term deal, already. I think it’s insulting that the Habs want to play their former Norris Trophy winner 5.25 million a year. Talk about being low balled. In my opinion, Subban is definitely worth 8 million a year, if not 10 million...

I actually did this twice in the last stroke play tourney that I played in, back in 2008. No one likes to be that guy.Related articlesT.J.

Subban, Remains unsigned

#494499443 / gettyimages.comP.K. Subban is still a restricted free agent without a contract. The Hab’s defenseman isn’t saying anything about his contract negotiations either. This is probably a smart move. “I’ll answer one question about the negotiation,” Subban told a media scrum at Royal Montreal Golf Club.“It’s been kept pretty quiet the whole time and it’s going...

All we know is, Subban is going to get paid, that's a fact Jack. I think he's going to be filthy rich. Whether you like him or not, Subban is the face of the Montreal Canadiens. In my opinion...
