Originally written March 27, 2013 on Boston's Bettah:
Peter Chiarelli says Malcolm Subban will not be traded, but reports say otherwise If the Boston Bruins are to make any trade by next Wednesday’s trade deadline, phone calls made to general manager Peter Chiarelli concerning Bruins goaltending prospect Malcolm Subban. Subban, the 24th overall pick in this past summers NHL draft, is one of the top goalie prospects in the world and figures to be a huge part of the Bruins future. Whether that is immediate future via a trade for a top 6 forward or distant future when he actually tends the goal for the Bruins remains to be seen. If Chiarelli is to be believed, Malcolm Subban is to be a part of the distant future. On “Toucher and Rich” this morning, Chiarelli came on to talk about the trade deadline and said, pretty definitively, that the Boston Bruins were “not” trading Malcolm Subban. There is talk, however, this was said because there are plenty of reports to the contrary. New England Hockey Journal and Bruins prospect expert Kirk Luedeke is hearing otherwise. @bosbettah_benti Chiarelli: “We aren’t trading Subban.” Completely jives with what I was told by Calgary source yesterday. — Kirk Luedeke (@kluedeke29) March 27, 2013 This is the trade-deadline for you. Nothing is actually getting anything done and nobody knows anything for certain. It would make sense for Peter Chiarelli to go on the radio this morning and tell the people that Subban is not on the trade block for two reasons: It gives the people what they want to hear. It could be just Chiarelli working the trade market and putting out quotes to drive up or down the trade market. Basically? I’m not expecting any thing executives say to be truthful until actual trades happen.
PLAYERS: Malcolm Subban
TEAMS: Boston Bruins
