Subban Talks About His Free Agent Situation

USATSI_7490437_154224518_lowresThe Montreal Canadiens and P.K. Subban are in the midst of a good contract battle. The Canadiens aren’t giving in to his demands, and his camp isn’t backing down.

There has been little talk between Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin and Subban’s agent, Don Meehan, in the past couple weeks. That could be changing soon as Meehan said yesterday that he expects to talk with Bergevin later this week.

Montreal Gazette reporter Dave Stubbs wrote: “Subban wishes to be paid what he believes he’s worth to his team, on and off the ice, preferably but not necessarily linked to a long-term deal, and the Canadiens are seemingly inflexible with their plan to offer short term, a bridge or gap contract toward something more lucrative down the road, almost a policy that has been applied in the recent past with Carey Price and Max Pacioretty.”

Stubbs was able to talk with Subban this week about restricted free agents situation. There were many quotes worth reading.

“It’s come down to this — I want to be paid what I’m worth,” Subban told me in a lengthy talk this week.

“I don’t even know what to think any more,” he said. “At this point, you have to remain optimistic (and realize) it is a business, and a lot of things can happen.

“I hope (a trade) is not the case. I want to play for the Canadiens. I want to help the team. With the young players we have in the organization right now, we still have a great opportunity to win.

“But for my style of game and for what I do for the team, the amount of minutes I play and for what I bring to the table, I have to be fairly compensated.”

“We’re not trying to rob the bank here (in contract talks). We’re not reinventing anything. We’re not holding a gun to the Canadiens’ head saying, ‘Pay us this or we’re walking away.’ We just want to be compensated for what I’m worth.”

Some people are starting to say that Subban should just a take a short-term deal, say two years, prove how good he is, and then ask for a longer, bigger contract then.

“You’d have to think that at some point, everybody will get so worn down by the situation,” he said. “If it drags on and leaves a bitter taste in everyone’s mouth …

“I’ve never been through this process before but it can be tough at times. You’d have to think this thing would end sooner than later.”

Bob McKenzie on TSN last night said that he thinks that this situation won’t get resolved, and that the Canadiens may end up trading him. If that is the case, there will be a long list of teams that will be interested.
