P.K. Subban will miss the start of training camp because of some general soreness.
"I've just been a little bit sore lately, so we're just going to take our time and make sure," Subban said. "I came in a couple days to skate early. Just a little bit sore, so we're going to see how I feel." This doesn't sound like a serious injury, so don't expect Subban to miss too much time. This shouldn't affect his draft position in standard fantasy leagues. Sep 23 - 8:30 PM

P.K. Subban is excited to begin a new chapter with Nashville.

"Coming into a new dressing room, it's exciting," he said. "Meeting new players, new management, new staff, it's an exciting time. For me, at 27 years old with no family or any children or anything like that, it's like you get a bunch of new brothers." He played for Montreal for six seasons before he was traded in the off-season. Subban should prove to be a great addition to the Predators' roster in 2016-17.

Roman Josi believes P.K. Subban's style of play will fit in perfectly in Nashville.

"Obviously [Subban's] a great player," said Josi. "We're excited to have him in Nashville. He's one of the best defensemen in the world. He's a great personality too. I think it's one of the philosophies of coach [Peter] Laviolette that he wants to play a fast game and he wants, defensemen -- especially defensemen -- that skate with the puck and move the puck and join the rush and play in the offensive zone too. I think P.K. fits that style really well." Subban has been able to put up some good point totals in his career, but now that he's away from Michel Therrien's conservative approach, he might be able to shine even more.

P.K. Subban is looking forward to suiting up for the Nashville Predators.

Subban was acquired in a blockbuster trade with Montreal in late-June and he's already made a number of appearances throughout his new city. "There's no question that I'm head-over-heels excited about this opportunity to play here in Nashville," Subban said. "I'm excited about our team, I'm excited about this city, and I'm most importantly excited about the opportunity to win a Stanley Cup. That's what this is all about. Coming here is not a popularity contest. Coming here is about helping this team to win, and win a championship. That's what I'm here to do."

The Nashville Predators don't see P.K. Subban's personality as a problem.

There's been speculation about whether or not Subban will mesh well with the Predators, but it sounds like Predators GM David Poile doesn't see that as a problem. "I told him the same thing — I traded for P.K. Subban, the player and the person," Poile said. "I could say there’s going to be things that we’re going to find out about him as a player that he can do or can’t do or other things that will come up over time, but I don’t want him to change. We want different players. I guess sometimes whether it be a team or a business or whatever walk of life you’re in, you want everybody to sort of march to the same beat. We don’t want that." In Subban, the Predators have acquired one of the best defensemen in the NHL and someone who could potentially help energize the team when needed.

P.K. Subban anticipates things being different with the small market Nashville Predators compared to his time with the Montreal Canadiens.

"I think there's just less distractions," Subban said. "I think in Montreal, things can become distractions for a team, and for us, I think that here, there's going to be less distractions for sure." Getting out from under the media scrutiny that comes from playing with the Montreal Canadiens might make things easier on him. That being said, he still excelled with the Canadiens and we believe Subban could play effectively in any market.

Analytics consultant Matt Pfeffer has been informed by the Montreal Canadiens that his contract won't be renewed.

Pfeffer's departure is noteworthy because it comes shortly after he argued to keep P.K. Subban on the team over Shea Weber. Montreal ultimately didn't agree with his recommendation and instead dealt Subban to Nashville in exchange for Weber. "Prior to the trade, I submitted a report comparing both players. I made a passionate case in favour of P.K. Subban," Pfeffer explained. "There was never a meeting with management. Ultimately, this is the nature of this kind of work. Management makes their decision based on a variety of criteria. Their evaluation may have been different in this case, but there was consensus on other decisions through my time with the team."

P.K. Subban never envisioned himself playing for any other team than the Montreal Canadiens.

Subban will of course be doing just that though after Montreal traded him to Nashville in exchange for Shea Weber. "I was talking to my Dad and many, many Christmases ago I went down the stairs, Christmas tree in the living room," Subban said, "and there’s a gift with my name on it. And I unwrap the present and it’s a Montreal Canadiens jersey with my name on it. Not only was it a gift for me that I loved, but I actually got to wear it and wear it with pride and wear it to work every day. But the reality is that today is Boxing Day, Christmas is over, so you just got to kind of move one, right?" Subban added that his ultimate goal was to win the Stanley Cup in Montreal, which now won't happen. That being said, as part of the Predators' impressive defensive core, he'll have an opportunity to compete for the Stanley Cup with them instead.

P.K. Subban is looking forward to arriving in Nashville.

Subban was traded to the Predators on June 29 while he was on vacation in Europe, but he's looking forward to landing in Nashville. "I can tell you this right now — I'd like to get down there as quickly as possible because I've always enjoyed my time in Nashville," he said. "Over (the) All-Star break, I had an opportunity to get to know some of the players on the team. I don't know if that's a coincidence, but I got along with the guys great."

For P.K. Subban and Shea Weber there are two key dates on the NHL calendar this upcoming season.

The Canadiens visit the Predators on Tuesday January the 3rd and the Habs host the Preds at the Bell Centre on Thursday March 3rd. Although we are expecting a warm reception for Weber at home, Habs' Nation will be beyond enthusiastic for the return of Subban to Montreal. Circle these dates in your calendar. They are sure to be enjoyable games.

P.K. Subban has been shipped to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber.

The Subban trade rumors have been swirling since Montreal's season ended because his no-movement clause kicks in on July 1. The Canadiens said they weren't shopping Subban, but getting Weber back in the deal changed their minds about standing pat. Subban had six goals and 51 points in 68 matches for Montreal last season.
Jun 29 - 4:13 PM

Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin insists he's not shopping P.K. Subban.

"I never shopped P.K. Subban," Bergevin said. "I never had, I’m not now. But I can’t help teams from calling me." That's an important distinction to make because the reports surrounding Subban aren't that the Habs are shopping him, it's that there's been an increased push from other teams to acquire him. Subban's no-movement clause kicks in on July 1, so if another team had aspirations to pry the start defenseman away from Montreal, now is the time to do it.

P.K. Subban isn't worried about the trade rumors focused on him.

There's reportedly been increased chatter surrounding Subban as we near July 1 when his no-movement clause would kick in. The Canadiens aren't actively shopping him, but by the sounds of things there will be attempts to pry him away."I’m never concerned," Subban said. "I’ve got a lot of things I’m doing in the off-season. My job is to prepare for the season. That’s all I can control. I never get nervous, I never get concerned about rumors or what people say. If I did that I’d be wasting a lot of energy. At the end of the day, I love playing for Montreal. I love the city. Not much else for me to do other than train and enjoy my summer. I can’t wait to go to Europe."
Jun 23 - 8:51 AM

There has reportedly been an influx of teams inquiring about P.K. Subban.

That's not to say that the Canadiens are shopping around Subban, just that there's plenty of interest in him. The fact that other teams would be interested in adding an elite defenseman isn't news, but the reason why this is coming up now is because Subban's no-movement clause kicks in on July 1. So if the Canadiens were to be tempted by an offer, now is the time for other franchises to make it.
Jun 22 - 3:16 PM

It doesn't sound like Montreal is going to trade P.K. Subban.

TSN's Darren Dreger said this on Montreal's TSN 690 on Thursday morning: "What I know is this. Very recently, I reached out to a couple of general managers who I know have had some contact with Bergevin over time. One in particular, a Western Conference general manager, flat-out said he asked Bergevin about the availability of P.K. Subban. Now, this is probably in the last two, three weeks, maybe a bit longer than that. And he was flat-out told that he wasn't going to be available. But a lot can change. If the right offer surfaces, Bergevin doing his job has to listen. If that opportunity surfaces between now and July 1, then obviously the Montreal Canadiens consider something." His no-trade clause kicks in on July 1, so the window to make a move is shrinking.
