The Montreal Canadiens fans surely miss defenseman P.K. Subban, and he sure too would like to still be in the Habs' uniform. In a tell-all interview with the Montreal Gazette, Subban mentioned how he stil does not understand why he was treated.
However, the 28-year-old blue liner cannot answer the question fans still ask him 16 months after the transaction: "Why do you think you were traded?"
“You know what? Let’s get a panel. We can get (Montreal Canadiens president and co-owner) Geoff Molson, we can get Marc Bergevin, we can get (former Habs coach) Michel Therrien. We can get the whole front office and we can just throw those questions at them.
“The reality is that I didn’t ask to be traded. I don’t know. I never got an explanation for it."
Fans would surely want an explanation behind the trade that started many changes in Montreal. However, both Molson and Bergevin declined requests to speak to the Montreal Gazette for the article.
GM Marc Bergevin was asked to comment on Subban's personality during a news conference, and make sure to say it had nothing to do with the trade.
“Yes, P.K.’s different, we’re not going to hide that, but there was never an issue, never a problem.”
So what was the problem? Subban - and Habs fans - would surely love to know...
