The Montreal Canadiens are about to get one of the game’s best young defensemen back in the fold after signing restricted free agent P.K. Subban to a two-year deal.
You would think that might be met with some excitement in the Montreal dressing room, but it certainly doesn’t sound like that’s the case. In fact, it sounds like some other Habs are wondering what took so long for Subban to agree to a new deal.
“To be honest, I’m glad that we don’t have to talk about it anymore,” fellow defenseman Josh Gorges said, according to the Montreal Gazette. “It’s a non-issue now and we can focus on getting ready to play the games without anything else to think about.”
Yeah, but Gorges must be excited to get a dynamic player like Subban back on the Montreal blue line, right?
“Like I said, it’s good that it’s over and done with and it’s settled. We don’t have to have these talks in the morning of what-if-this and what-if-that. It’s over. We can focus on playing hockey.”
As benign as those
