Habs GM Bergevin discusses PK Subban’s status

I believe this falls into the propagana line category, but Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin did address the status of restricted free agent-to-be PK Subban while attending the NHL Awards. NHL.com's Dan Rosen spoke with Bergevin on the red carpet:

"He's a big part of our team, and we'll make sure he's with us for a long time," Bergevin said Tuesday from the red carpet at the NHL Awards, where he was a finalist for the GM of the Year Award.

Bergevin also believes defenseman Andrei Markov is a big part of the Canadiens. He proved it by re-signing the 35-year-old defenseman to a three-year contract Monday. Bergevin said Markov told him before negotiations began that he wanted to remain with the Canadiens.

"Our fanbase, the Montreal Canadiens fans, should be proud that Andrei not only said [he wanted to be back], but he followed through," Bergevin said. "What he did [Monday] to stay with us, to me, should make our fans feel great about Andrei Markov that he wants to remain a Montreal Canadien."

Bergevin said he has gotten the same sense from Subban. Now it's about ironing out a new contract.
