Found August 29, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
In what has been a down time of late for Habs fans and hockey fans the like, two bits of news today from Montreal. The first, which you've likely already heard, is that Rene Bourque tore his abdominal wall and will be out the next 8-12 weeks recovering.  The second bit of news is, well, it isn't really news at all. However, it's an interview with PK Subban, in which he details his intention and desire to stay with the Canadiens.  The interview was conducted by venerable Montreal journalist Abe Hefter, and can be listened to in full at the link below: http://abehefter.wordpress.com/2012/08/30/pks-message-to-habs-fans-nhl/ For the record, I still believe PK will sign, and soon. However, the CBA business may need to be sorted out first, in which case, soon could turn into a while.
