What does Subban’s new deal mean for his cap league value?
One of the big stories of the summer has been the signing of P.K. Subban to an eight-year, $72-million contract with the Montreal Canadiens. Judging by the amount of activity discussing the topic on the forum, this is clearly a controversial contract signed by a controversial defenseman.
The contract itself is massive to say the least. Its length is the maximum allowed and the cap hit of $9 million is the highest among all defensemen by a fairly wide margin. Subban only trails Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin in cap hit among all NHL players.
