P.K. Subban took his snub from Team Canada in stride.
"I mean, everybody wants to make the team, right? And there’s a bunch of guys that I’m sure wanted to be on the team. But that’s the way it goes," Subban said. "Listen, at the end of the day, we could take four or five teams to this thing. When I was speaking to [Team Canada GM] Doug Armstrong, my number one thing was I just want to see Canada win gold. So, I’ll be there cheering just like everybody else." Subban was the Norris Trophy in 2013 and was a finalist for the award in 2015. He also was part of the gold-medal winning Team Canada in the 2014 Olympics, but he only appeared in one game. May 28 - 9:29 PM

P.K. Subban won't be playing for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey.

Subban didn't make the roster even though Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin is part of Team Canada's management team. Subban was on the 2014 Olympic team, but he served as nothing more than a spare part on Canada's Gold Medal-winning team. The 26-year-old had six goals, 51 points and 75 penalty minutes in 68 games this season.

The Canadiens trading away P.K. Subban remains a "massive long shot," according to TSN’s Darren Dreger.

It seems crazy to even entertain such talk as Subban is a player to build around, and not trade away. Subban’s no-trade clause sets in July 1. "I still think that it is a massive long shot at best because if you’re moving out a piece like that, how are you replacing that piece. It’s going to hurt you," Dreger said on TSN 690 on Thursday. Following president Geoff Molson’s comments in which he said he’d be "surprised" if Subban were dealt, TSN’s Bob McKenzie told TSN 690 on Friday, "Well, I think they’re keeping all of their doors open. I don’t think they – again, we’re all like forensic wordsmiths here. Every time we ask a question, we’re looking for how the answer is delivered and what phraseology is used." We'd seriously doubt Subban is wearing a new uniform next season, or any time soon.

PK Subban has been named a finalist for the 2016 NHL Foundation Player Award.

The award, which comes with a prize of $25K, is presented to "an NHL player who applies the core values of hockey; commitment, perseverance and teamwork, to enrich the lives of people in his community." Subban pledged to donate $7M over the next 10 years to the Montreal Children's Hospital Foundation. Through his efforts over the season, he's raised over $800K in additional pledges through the PK Subban Foundation.

Montreal GM Marc Bergevin is not looking to trade core players, including P.K. Subban.

However, that doesn't mean he won't listen and the rumor mill has been churning. "I do not listen to gossip. We talked about the P.K. situation at the team's post-mortem. This is not a player I'm in a position to trade. Nothing has changed since April 11," Bergevin said. "If someone wants to call me regarding any player, for sure we'll listen. But to solicit offers, we're not. Neither for P.K., or anyone else. Not at the moment. Our core is good. Carey Price, (Brendan) Gallagher, (Alex) Galchenyuk, Max (Pacioretty) are good young people, who've grown together and have learned a lot this year. We'll see how things go."
May 3 - 10:02 AM

P.K. Subban's no-movement clause kicks in on July 1, so there will be plenty of trade speculation until then.

"He really stopped short on saying he would not trade P.K. Subban," said Marc Antoine Godin of La Presse referring to GM Marc Bergevin's end of the year meeting with the media. "And the signals over the years, it seems there's enough smoke to create a fire. So as we speak, I'm not saying he's going to be traded, but I'm concerned that it might end up the case." The time sensitive nature of his contract adds some intrigue to the situation. Godin speculated that Edmonton could be a potential landing spot for Subban and that Montreal would look at Taylor Hall or Ryan Nugent-Hopkins in return. David Staples of the Edmonton Journal thinks the Oilers will hesitate to give up Hall, but he could be involved in a trade to land a top defenseman if he gets moved.

Montreal GM Marc Bergevin doesn't believe the speculation that there is a rift between P.K. Subban and head coach Michel Therrien.

"It's to be respected, and sometimes it's called tough love," Bergevin said. "Across the board, every team I've been on (during his NHL playing days) it was the same thing. So I'm not saying P.K. does like or doesn't like Mike. I know one thing is since Mike's been here, P.K. has won one Norris (Trophy), has been nominated for another one, leads our team in ice time. Overall, under Michel Therrien, P.K. has progressed to a really young, fine defenseman." Subban and Therrien had some disagreements during a tough season for the Canadiens.

P.K. Subban (neck) is making progress, but he hasn't fully recovered yet.

"We’re taking it day to day, trying to get my timing back," said Subban. "I still have some symptoms from the injury and they don’t want me back before I’m 100 per cent. I’m trying to be patient. This is the first time I’ve been out of the lineup with an injury, so I’m more anxious with every game that passes." Subban has missed six straight games due to the injury. He's been ruled out for Thursday's contest in Detroit, but he did at least travel with the team.
