Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban is the best restricted free agent defenseman on the market right now.
For teams looking for a young defenseman who can skate, run the power play, play physical, and shoot well form the point, Subban is a perfect fit.
Unfortunately for Canadiens fans, the talks between Subban and the team are not progressing at an ideal pace, according to L.A. Lariviere of TVA Sports.
I can add this about Subban: sources say that, merely 1 month since talks have kicked off, negotiations are going VERY slow right now #Habs— L.A. Lariviere (@L_A_theRiver) August 23, 2012
The only way for teams to get Subban from Montreal would be to sign him to an offer sheet and hope the Canadiens choose not to match, or via trade.
Let's look at five teams who should extend an offer sheet to Subban.
