How Much is PK Subban Worth?

This past week, the Montreal Canadiens and PK Subban began contract negotiations and it is expected to be a long, drawn out process. It was less than a year ago when Subban missed the start of the shortened season because of a contract dispute and he ultimately settled on a two-year, $5.75 million bridge contract. He then went on to have a career year, ending with his first Norris Trophy and the team going from 15th to 2nd in the Eastern Conference. So Subban will not want another bridge contract; he’ll want a long-term, big-money contract.

In an effort to see what Subban should be paid, I am going to compare Subban to a very similar defenceman who has already cashed in, Erik Karlsson. After winning the Norris in 2012, Karlsson signed a seven year, $45 million contract. Subban will want something similar and statistically he has earned it.
