From Bob McKenzie via TSN990:  "At some point the notion of trading PK Subban is something that I think the Montreal Canadiens may decide to deal with." So why would I care that a rebuilding Northeast Division rival's rookie GM is possibly on the verge of trading it's most marketable, young first pairing defenceman? And did I neglect to mention the future consequences of potentially irking said player's best friend, who also happens to be the franchise goalie?  Because silly, mediocrity is hilarious.

Both coaches are in their...

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, Jamie Benn, P.K. Subban and Ryan O’Reilly remained unsigned Tuesday as the season hurled itself into warp speed, thanks to a compressed schedule.  Of the three RFAs, my gut feeling says Benn will be the first of the three to sign. But that’s not sure thing.  I just don’t think they’re that far apart.  Look no further than...
