Subban and the Habs have an arbitration hearing set for Friday but Don Meehan told Sportsnet 590 The Fan’s “Prime Time Sports” that there’s still time for the two sides to reach a contract extension before that deadline.

"There's always enough time in that respect," Meehan said. "In terms of this negotiation we've been at it for some time now. Both sides have worked very hard, a number of people on both sides have contributed their thoughts and theories and views in relation to this whole process.

"So I think through a collective means, through everyone contributing, there's always time to do that."

Subban earned $3.75 million in the final season of a two-year contract and wound up tieing for fifth among NHL defemsen last season with 53 points in 82 games. He also led the Habs with 14 points in the Stanley Cup playoffs while averaging 27:26 ice time per game.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Canadiens are 20/1 to win the 2015 Stanley Cup and 8/1 to win the Eastern Conference next season.
