Yeah, possibly as a stop gap but I think the east is better choice for him. Not sure if he could handle the Canucks travel especially with the condensed schedule!
LOL you are like Elaine Benice with all those !!!!!

P.K. Subban has agreed to a two-year/$5.75 million contract with the Montreal Canadiens.

$2.875M per year??!!

Almost seems racist....

Subban had no leverage and Bergevin bent him right over.

Offer them Ballard, Booth and a 2nd rounder, and ask them to throw in Brandon Prust.

$8.4M going their way $5.3M coming our way.

Would love to see Subban here at that price in exchange for those 2.....consider sending Connauton.

:P

It's only 2 years deal though. Once he is a UFA, I bet anything that Subban will never re-sign with the Habs.

Subban will be an RFA when the deal expires.

And I dunno he seems to like it up the butt in Montreal...

Caps have made a couple moves.

Zach Hamill to FLA for Casey Wellman

Mathieu Beaudoin to CHI for Peter LeBlanc

Don't know too much about any of these guys??

^^^ bums.

But I think that Zach Boychuk pickup may bode well for your Pittsburgh Penguins.

Bob McKenzie‏@TSNBobMcKenzie

NYR have traded Mike Rupp to MIN.
Michael Russo
According to sources, the Wild has traded Darroll Powe to the New York Rangers for Michael Rupp.

Rupp, a 6-foot-5, 230-pounder, has 53 goals and 94 points in 565 games. He is a tough, tough customer that will add grit to the Wild lineup. He has 78 career fights.

More soon, but Powe was to be a healthy scratch tonight at Phoenix. Now we know why.

Looks like our ol' buddy Tim Thomas is heading to the Islanders. :eh:
TEAM Radio ‏@TEAM1040
RT @stapenewsday: Reports out there are correct: #Isles have acquired G Tim Thomas for a conditional 2nd-rounder in either 2014 or 2015.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
