    LeBrun is an idiot and he absolutely throws click bait garbage out constantly. I am more of an “insider” than he is. He’s right up there with Eklund and this garbage is just another straw in the hay stack of evidence.

    I HIGHLY doubt nobody has even inquired to him about his availability given the whispers surrounding that Subban might be on the block given their blue line upcoming contract situations

    LeBrun specifically said yesterday he had no information on Subban being available, and he has no idea where those rumors are coming from. Here's his article on the Athletic, at least the first part that is free to read for everybody:


    I was about to go on Finnish national television during an intermission of a Stanley Cup final game recently when my fine host asked me before we went to air if I’d address the P.K. Subban trade rumours.

    To which I responded, what rumours? I certainly had nothing to offer on the subject. So, we chatted about other NHL topics.

    But for whatever reason, those rumours have been out there, and the GM of the Nashville Predators doesn’t understand it either.

    “You see tweets from different places, but, that’s not happening,’’ David Poile told The Athletic when asked about a potential Subban trade.

    “Nobody has even called me about him,” added Poile. “P.K. played terrific this year. He played really well. He’s a really good player. He’s one of the three candidates for the Norris Trophy. I really don’t know where this comes from.’’


    LeBrun: Predators GM David Poile makes it very clear P.K.

    The tired "smoke/fire" saying as pertaining to rumors is an idiotic thing to say. No, the rumors don't always have a basis in reality. To pretend otherwise is just weird,

    Also, you're right that Lebrun wouldn't mention that rumor unless he had insider info. The insider is Poile, and the information he provided is that Subban is not available. He literally just told you so.

    Lebrun for Subban

    Upon further investigration, when factoring in contracts

    Subban (9M) > Weber (7.8M)
    Lebrun (a lot less than NHL player minimum wage) > Weber (7.8M)

    since Subban got traded for Weber, one must only assume Lebrun > Subban

    I change my mind

    Lebrun for Subban+

    As tight lipped as TOR was in the last few years there were still a few rumors before a trade became a reality: Kessel, Clarkson + Bernier (in and out) plus in Lou's era Boyle and Andersen. We heard these names before they became Leafs.

    Just because this potential trade hurts your feelings doesn't mean that it's not true.

    Poile is obviously not going to admit it because he's not a fool. A foolish GM would be completely transparent.

    When Bergevin was talking to other teams about Subban 2 years ago, some actual insiders (like Dreger, LeBrun, McKenzie) talked about it and gave specific details, and they all said there was stuff going on.

    This year, all of them are saying they have absolutely no info on Subban being available, and they don't know where the rumors come from.

    No credible insider ever said anything about Subban being on the trade block this year. The only one who said something that might sound like that was Pagnotta, and he later said he never implied that Subban was on the trade block. He just thinks Subban will be traded because of his contract and the Preds salary cap situation in the upcoming seasons.

    Why would a potential trade hurt my feelings? I couldn't care less what the Predators do with their players. Giving us an example of how some names are sometimes mentioned befire trades happen doesn't change the fact countless other names are mentioned without being traded.

    I have no idea what's going on with Subban. I'm just telling you that your assumption that Lebrun knows more than he has said is wrong, and that your interpretation of the events is wrong. You can't use Lebrun to pretend Subban is on the block because nothing Lebrun has written about Subban points toward this. At all.

    You think Subban is on the block? Be my guest! You have people or quotes to back it up? Use them. Don't use stuff that says exactly the opposite of what you're trying to say. It makes you look ridiculous.

    Predators GM David Poile denied that he is trading P.K. Subban, saying “that’s not happening” and “Nobody has even called me about him.”

    Well he kept getting hired. But regardless, he's been one of the best insiders for awhile.

    When Poile trades Subban: "I said nobody ever called me about him. I was in fact receiving several text messages a day about a possible trade, so I wasn't lying."

    Not sure if I missed something but LeBrun specifically said he had nothing to report on Subban being available, and he didn't understand where the rumors came from.

    LeBrun: Predators GM David Poile makes it very clear P.K.

    I find it amusing how every single reporter / journalist is garbage.
