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.

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."

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.

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.

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.

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.
Apr 27 - 8:15 AM

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 will not play Saturday against the Rangers.

Although he is practising with his Montreal teammates, his conditioning is solid and he is improving overall, Subban is still experiencing stiffness and mobility issues in his neck. For now consider him day-to-day.
