When will the Montreal Canadiens lock in their franchise player PK Subban with a new contract? I expect it to be soon and at close to $9 million a season for eight years.
PK is obviously not worried. He will let his agent conclude all of the details with Habs GM Marc Bergevin. In fact, I have learned that the outstanding defenceman and King of Charisma is with his friend and mentor Joel Leonoff in the French Riviera. While in Monaco, PK and "The Joel" spent some time with legendary basketball player Earvin "Magic" Johnson.

Leonoff, whom I played against many years ago in the Côte Saint-Luc Slo Pitch Association, is a fantastic role model for PK. He is the chief executive of online money transfer company Optimal Payments, which has a market value of more than $1 billion. Last week Leonoff announced that Optimal would buy two U.S.-based online payment firms for $225 million to expand its operations in North America, sending its shares up as much as nine percent.
