Subban not asking for trade: Meehan

The Deep Freeze has to end sooner or later...doesn't it?  

While Montrealers took measures to endure the wicked cold spell this week, agent Don Meehan texted CJAD to re-confirm he and his client PK Subban have not asked for a trade.

Subban has repeatedly said he wants to stay in Montreal; Marc Bergevin has repeatedly stated he wants PK for the longterm. 

So when comes the thaw?  

Some Habs fans say that's a moot point as long as the club is winning.   A majority of Canadiens' supporters told's Habs poll the club CAN make the playoffs without PK, though most minds around the NHL suggest otherwise.

On a day when the Canadiens revealed their Tour des Canadiens is going 2 floors higher, Habs fans can only wonder if some of that Hockey Real Estate-related revenue could go to a signing bonus for Subban.

    Reports have suggested that the habs were willing to give Subban a 3 yr deal worth 10.5 million. Like Price and other Habs there was a 2 or 3 year transition contract, than reward them later. Than, a later report, indicated the Bergevin, is willing to give Subban camp a 6 yr deal worth 24 million. Rumours indicate that the Subban camp would take less than 6 yr deal but more money yearly. This appears, so much, like a lockout stalemate with greed prevailing. Bergevin and Subban camp, only agree on being a hab, is the priority (this is great). At least they agree on something. Sometimes, the market value of a player is different, than what a player (or agent), may thinks he is worth. For the fans sake, forget the greed (like the lockout), THAW NOW, we do deserve it.

    Since I don't exactly have high hopes for our team this seaon to begin with, I find myself thinking why not wait it out? Why commit to an amount if PK has not proven himself yet? The last thing we need is another Gomez scenario on our hands. Let's hope Begervin is smarter than Gainey was. Sure PK is great for Habs marketability - there is no question I enjoy watching him play - but if it were my dough and my cap to consider, I'd would not give in so easily. He's not the only self-proclaimed super-star.

    Canadians have less than a 50/50 chance of finishing out of last place, sign Subban, he is worth. The puck is in his end of the rink he knows it and if the Canadians had half a functioning brain in their head they would know it. All he gives is 100 % when he is on the ice. They saw the value of Price, come on guys "take the blinders off" and see PK'S value.
