CFN – Habs GM us facing his first real acid test over the PK Subban contract. Mr. Subban, the extremely talented D man appears on the verge of being traded now. It’s in Mr. Bergevin’s benefit though to wait out offers and not pull a Patrick Roy panic deal.
Ultimately you need to build a Stanley Cup contender with players that want to be there and are committed. PK not signing after the off season and then not following fellow Rangers D man Michael Del Zotto in signing a 2 year deal clearly shows that he is not committed to the fans of Montreal and the Canadiens as an organization.
And with his blessing of talent there are 29 more teams out there that would love to have him play for them. The question is who will Mr. Bergevin’s dance partner ultimately be and will he wait out the best offer as Vancouver GM Mike Gillis has with Roberto Luongo or panic like his predecessors in Montreal.
Mr. Bergevin’s Montreal chapter of his career will be made by this situation. While this scribbler isn’t sure if the clock has rung for PK being able to return to the dressing room of the Habs, that bell certainly is close to ringing.
Los Angeles, Edmonton, Philadelphia, Anaheim, Chicago, Dallas, Phoenix, San Jose, Tampa Bay, more or less have what it would take to get young Mr. Subban.
What do you think Hockey fans? Will PK ever wear the Habs sweater again? You can post your comments below.
