The Star is reporting that PK Subban, the young star defensemen of the Montreal Canadiens, finally accepted a contract to rejoin his team for the shortened NHL season. Before the NHL lockout, Subban was one of the most sought after players in the game due to his strength on the blue line, his ability to move the puck, and maintaining a respectful shot. ““It was about getting a deal done that was fair to both sides.””
Due to his well-rounded skill set, the Canadiens weren’t the only team interested in Subban – though they did get the first opportunity. Other teams felt the enforcing young defensemen would add depth to their blue lines, and the trade rumours enticed betting activity from sports bettors and bookmakers. Websites such as Onlinecasino.org discussed the Subban trade saga, and these rumours were the focus of bets at various online casino and sportsbetting sites.
Could Subban have gotten a better offer if he asked to be traded from Montreal?
While the Canadiens currently rank eighth in the NHL in goals-scored per game in the early part of the season, Habs GM Marc Bergevin wouldn’t mind adding a top-six winger, and with plenty of teams in the market for help on the backend, he could package a defenseman in order to obtain more offense.
The Detroit Red Wings, Los Angeles Kings, Ottawa Senators, Minnesota Wild, Edmonton Oilers and Carolina Hurricanes are among the teams in the market for a defenseman, but the Habs aren’t the only club with a surplus of them.
Text Size BROSSARD, Que. — It wasn’t exactly smiles and high fives in the Montreal Canadiens dressing room on Tuesday over the news that P.K. Subban’s contract dispute had finally ended. In fact, the mood was surprisingly chilly on a team that started the lockout-delayed NHL regular season 3-1-0 without the flashy player who was their top defenceman last season.
The Montreal Canadiens have just signed restricted free agent PK Subban to a 2 year contract worth a total of 5.75 million.
Good news if you are a habs fan and didn’t want to see the Subban issue grow any more that it already has.
RDS.ca is reporting that the Flyers and Canadiens have been taking about a potential deal for Subban. It is noted that the Flyers are eagerly looking to find another top defender aftger they failed to land Weber in the summer.
