There were plenty of notable free agents on the market this summer, led by the likes of Johnny Gaudreau , Nazem Kadri, John Klingberg, Andrew Copp and Jack Campbell, all of whom (other than Kadri) have found their next professional homes.
However, one of the more high profile names that remains still available is none other than New Jersey Devils blue liner P.K. Subban, who was once known as one of the league's top players at his position. However, the enigmatic personality has fallen on hard times lately on the ice, seeing his stats fall off a cliff in recent years.
He's coming off the massive eight-year, US$72-million contract he signed with the Montreal Canadiens in 2014 before a high profile deal in 2016 that sent him to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber, and while he's certainly not the player that he once was, there is thought that he could still be useful to a Stanley Cup contending squad.
"I'm told that P.K. Subban could sign a short-term, "prove it deal" if it means he signs with a Stanley Cup contender." - David Pagnotta
Last season with the Devils, Subban scored five goals with 17 assists along with a -8 plus/minus rating. Over the course of his career spent with the Canadiens, Predators and Devils, he's scored 115 goals with 352 assists.
Could we soon see Subban join a contender? Time will tell.
