Montreal Canadiens defenseman P.K. Subban has signed a 8-year $72 million contract. His average annual salary (AAV) will be $9 million/year.
Fan & Media reaction to Subban’s contract:
Big fan of PK Subban and his game but $9M per season is WAY over paid in my opinion. Could have lived with 7.5-8 but NINE for EIGHT years?

PK Subban is now the best paid D in the NHL if you look at his AAV. At $9M per season. At $7.87M per season Shea Weber is second. #tvasports

@PKSubban1 now it will cost 20$ for a can of beer at the bell center. How do I explain to my son that we can't afford going to games?
