P.K. Subban’s New Band Of Brothers

from Adam Vingan of The Tennessean,

This is where the defenseman has spent his NHL career — in the glare of the spotlight. It has followed him from Montreal to Nashville, where he was traded June 29 for former Predators captain Shea Weber.

The hockey world will be watching as Subban fully begins the process of adjusting to his new, significantly different surroundings.

"It's been a lot of ups and downs emotionally, for sure," Subban said of his frenzied offseason. "Playing in Montreal for six years, being drafted in 2007, a lot of great moments in that organization. The positive moments outweigh the negative ones, so it was a positive experience for me playing in Montreal, but now it's just time for me to turn the page. It's a new chapter. A swap was made and now I've got to look forward to the rest of my career here in Nashville.

"Coming into a new dressing room, it's exciting. Meeting new players, new management, new staff, it's an exciting time. For me, at 27 years old with no family or any children or anything like that, it's like you get a bunch of new brothers."

I still think Subban would be a nice fit on the Wings. Overpaid (yes) and would be reigned in, killing skills

Subban would be a nice fit anywhere where management wasn’t so uptight and rigid with how they expect players to act.

He’ll be a great fit in Nashville. It might take fans a bit to get over losing Weber but the team will get better for it.
