Bruce “Malkin To The Kings” Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun made news yesterday when he mentioned the Rangers in an article involving the Habs and P.K. Subban:
If the Habs decide to deal Subban, Detroit, Philadelphia and the Rangers will make a push.
Naturally, throwing the Rangers out there is par for the course with pretty much all rumors, especially one that involves a soon-to-be star. But this one appears to be a little too much when looking at Subban’s contract demands:
As reported last week, Subban wants a five-year, $27.5-million deal at $5.5 million per season. Sources say Bergevin used Florida D Dmitry Kulikov (two years, $5 million) and New York D Michael Del Zotto (two years, $5.1 million) as comparisons.

Last week, before a game at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, I had a P.K. Subban related discussion with a longtime NHL executive who was at the game.
