And now a distraction from lockout talk: Subban rumours

Well, it was only a matter of time until the trade rumours really started, given that PK Subban still has yet to sign with the Habs. 

 

Slam.ca is reporting that the Philadelphia Flyers have asked about a deal involving Subban, and ony can only wonder if this is the first step before a potential offer sheet to the restricted free agent. You'll find a link to the article here

 

As you'll see, the article speculates that Sean Couturier would likely be a central piece going back to the Habs. While there is no doubt that Couturier would provide much needed size, speed, youth and physicality down the middle, taking Subban out of the Habs already thin defensive core could be a death blow to any playoff chance they have in whichever year the NHL decides to play. But hey, at least we've got a rumour to chew on that doesn't involve revenue splits and dollar figures.

About The Upper Canadien

The Upper Canadien is your one stop shop for all things Montreal Canadiens. Since the summer of 2010, I've been providing Habs related news, notes, and most importantly, opinions. As a blogger, I don't believe it's my job to report the news, it's my privilege to comment on it. You may disagree with what I suggest. In fact, you most likely will. But that's the great part about blogging: it spurs opinion, comment and engages all involved. I've really enjoyed all the debate and commentary from readers thus far and I encourage everyone to respond with ideas on lineups, trades, logos, sweaters, mascots, whatever. The Upper Canadien is a conversation for all hockey fanatics.

I've come to Kukla's Korner with four years of campus radio and three years of sportswriting from my time at Mount Allison University on Canada's East coast. Not only do I not have any professional journalistic training, after five years in the corporate world, I've spent much of the past two years completing an MBA. Business by day, hockey by night, I'm a Canadiens fan through and through. I hope you enjoy reading as much as I do writing.
