Subban earned $3.75 million in the final season of a two-year contract with Montreal and became the NHL's fifth-highest scoring defenseman with 53 points in 82 games. He led the Habs with 14 points in the Stanley Cup playoffs, averaging 27:26 of ice time in each game.

The restricted free agent has an arbitration hearing scheduled for August 1 as negotiations are ongoing according to NHL.com. Subban reiterates that he wants to play in Montreal for a very long time.

"Obviously I remain adamant on remaining in Montreal and being a Montreal Canadien, and not just for a long time but hopefully for the rest of my career, and be a lifer there," Subban told Breakfast Television in Toronto earlier this week. "I really enjoy playing there."

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Canadiens are 20/1 to win the 2015 Stanley Cup after opening with 18/1 odds. They're also 8/1 to win the Eastern Conference next season.
