Arbitrator must have ruling within 48 hours, it will be a one-year deal since both sides submitted one-year proposals.

Sides can negotiate until ruling comes down but as of now, no talks schedules.

So it becomes the Subban watch for the next two days.

I wonder if educational means he got to hear why the habs don’t think he’s worth what he asked for

God I hope they said a bunch of mean things about him and poisoned the relationship so bad that he becomes insistent on hitting UFA and leaving Montreal.

For Detroit.

I know it won’t happen.

But I want it so bad.

I just don’t understand the Habs’ logic when it comes to Subban. He’s been unfairly benched before, the last contract they negotiated with him was a headache, and now this. If this was Ken Holland doing the same to TPH, I would lose my mind. Can’t imagine what Habs fans are thinking. That comment from Subban certainly sounds to me like a guy who has been offended. And like Nathan, hopefully offended enough to walk as a UFA. Straight to the Winged Wheel :D.

Stupid question but why hasn’t someone offer-sheeted him yet?

mf, once Subban filed for arbitration, the offer sheet was removed from the equation.

When Subban speaks publicly, he comes off as extremely thoughtful, and his words never seem to be inflammatory in the least. If he showed half of that the maturity on the ice, I’d be all in favor of him becoming a Red Wing. But until that happens, let him be some of coach’s headache.

What immaturity do you see on the ice that I don’t? The guy can play and does exactly what the Wings need desperately to be a truly good team again.

This is all probably moot because he’s probably not coming to Detroit when he’s a UFA. It’s still Montreal’s race to lose given they can offer more money than any other team.

If he accomplishes what he does on the ice being young an immature.  Imagine the payoff when he hits 29 or 30

I think it is the absolute funniest thing in the world that Red Wings fans want Subban to hit free agency, thinking they would have a chance at him. Sure he is a right shot, but Babcock hardly played him in these last Olympics, so that has to tell you (1) What Babs thinks of Subban and (2) what Subban would think of Babcock.


Then consider that the Red Wings can’t even get B-rate defensemen to come here when we offer more term and money, so what exactly makes them think Subban would choose to come to Detroit?

Keep dreaming.

It tells me that in Babcock’s mind PK Subban is a world class right handed defenseman, with only three guys ahead of him.

You think Babcock wouldn’t play him over every single defenseman Detroit currently has on roster?  If so, you’re out of your mind.

And I didn’t hear Subban say anything negative about Babcock, so unless you know something nobody else does, maybe you shouldn’t go off making assumptions with no basis behind them.

Nah, Subban was cool with not playing all Olympics. Of course he wanted to go to Russia to sit on his ass and watch everyone else play while he doesn’t get paid (?). Who doesnt want to vacation in Russia?

Hey PK , shouldn’t you be planning your future with your agent rather than trolling a hockey blog?
