P.K. Subban Still Cannot Explain The Trade

from Brendan Kelly of the Montreal Gazette,

On the phone from Nashville, Subban says he has no idea why he is no longer playing for the team he grew up loving as a kid in Toronto, adding it’s up to Habs management to explain themselves.

“It’s just hilarious when people ask me the question, ‘Why do you think you were traded?’,” Subban says after a recent practice at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

“You know what? Let’s get a panel. We can get (Montreal Canadiens president and co-owner) Geoff Molson, we can get Marc Bergevin, we can get (former Habs coach) Michel Therrien. We can get the whole front office and we can just throw those questions at them.

“The reality is that I didn’t ask to be traded. I don’t know. I never got an explanation for it.

“When you think about it, I think it was two years before, we had a great team, put on a great run (in the 2014 playoffs) and I thought a lot of those pieces were still there for us to do it again. But for whatever reason, that was not just part of the plan any more.

“I can’t explain it. I can only make the best of the situation I’m put in.”
