Thread: Subban
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Book_Hockey</b></div><div>God no. Trouba contract is one of the worst in hockey and he’s signed for 6 more seasons. Subbans is done after next year.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>FreeTacosAreBestTacos</b></div><div>Rangers decline. Subban's cooked, and Trouba is a Top 4 Dman, and will almost certainly be one for the duration of his contract. Realistically, Lundkvist is trade bait and Schneider is multiple years off from being a viable Top 4 option, and the Rangers have no one else in house to fill that slot.</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Devil1122</b></div><div>Devils easily pass. Subban has less term than Trouba</div></div>

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>NHLfan10506</b></div><div>Subban is a better player on a better contract. NJD declines.</div></div>

Here’s my reasoning: Trouba has not played up to his contract whatsoever but he’s only 26 and has shown that he has the potential to be a top-20 dman in the nhl. It is undeniably a risky deal for New Jersey, but the devils have oodles of cap space for the next few years and zero depth on the right side after severson and maybe Reilly Walsh. A change of scenery might be exactly what trouba needs to find his game again, and if he can, the devils add a huge piece on the backend that a lot of other teams with great young forward pieces have spent years trying to find (hello Toronto).

From the rangers point of view, they have a plethora of stellar d prospects but are going to have some big cap problems in 2-3 years when all of their young guys become RFA’s. If trouba doesn’t improve by then, his contract will be unmoveable (especially with a full NMC so it will be better to cut their losses on trouba now while he still has value as a reclamation project than trying to do so down the road. Subban is a nice veteran stopgap on the second pair until Schneider and lundkvist are NHL ready
