6 Reasons the Montreal Canadiens Need to Sign PK Subban Now

P.K. Subban is one of the most polarizing players in the NHL.

He is an eye-catching player who makes fans hold their breath. When he winds up in his own zone with the puck, there is a chance he is going to make a spectacular coast-to-coast rush and bring the fans to their feet.

He is a maddening player who is just as likely—perhaps more so—to flop on the ice like a wounded animal in the hope that he can draw a penalty call on his opponent.

Subban has a big shot from the point and has scored one of the biggest goals in recent Canadiens' memory.

He has an electric smile and a noteworthy personality.

He also has been called out by players around the league for not having enough respect for the game and veteran players.

Subban, 23, is not a finished product by any stretch.

Subban had an entry-level contract that paid him $875,000 for each of the last three years. As the season starts, he is a holdout and a restricted free agent.

The Canadiens need to get Subban's signature on a new contract right way.

Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette suggested a two-year deal for $5 million would seem to be in order for Subban, and that appears to be a reasonable solution to the impasse.
