    It's just a feeling, but he doesn't strike me as someone who will stay good for 8 more years.

    I agree and good for him is 30 goals 80 points per season. He is getting paid like a superstar now in a big hockey marekt. If he doesn't bring it all the time, he will hear about it.

    That's also a hard contract to move if anything comes up and both parties want to part ways
    Go Habs Go!

    Subban has won a Norris. kessel has not won a thing.

    I won't be happy if PK gets 8mil.

    Everybody says everybody is overpaid.

    Kessel is in line with his peers (adjusting for inflation).

    Nash, Parise, Gaborik, etc

    Sure they are all over-paid. I just don't think phil should of gotten that much. he's a 6.5-7mil player imo.

    How many guys in the league are making 7.5 plus a year?
