While the city of Montreal is still buzzing from the aftershock of the P.K. Subban trade, Canadiens owner and president Geoff Molson is confident that the move will make the team better next season.
"P.K. was certainly a great player for our team," Molson explained to RDS at the team's AHL announcement in Laval on Monday. "But I think (GM) Marc (Bergevin) has done a very good job this summer to improve our team for next season with the arrival of new players."
Bergevin and the Canadiens made arguably the team's biggest trade in more than two decades, sending the Norris Trophy-winning defenceman and fan favourite to the Nashville Predators for star blueliner Shea Weber on June 29.
"Of course for Marc, this is a very difficult decision, but I support it 100 per cent," said Molson.
