The Montreal Canadiens are headed to arbitration with star defenceman P.K. Subban. No last-minute deal was concluded before Subban’s scheduled 9 a.m. ET arbitration hearing. The Canadiens have reportedly offered US$5.25 million for next season while Subban’s camp countered with $8.5 million. The arbitrator is to decide over the next two days where the player’s salary will be set. She can chose either of the bids or set a salary somewhere in between. The two sides can still reach a deal before the decision. The 2012-13 Norris Trophy winner was expected to sign a long-term contract that would likely have made him the highest-paid player in Canadiens history.
