    It's not legitimate though. Eklund and Bob and Insidrrr and others are just Bat Boy Enquirer. But you land a few guesses and suddenly get a following.

    But hey, if you wanna believe in astrology go for it.

    Well can’t same be said about Pacioretty? Even at deadline everyone was certain he’d be gone but they often said “were hearing nothing”. MB hasn’t said he’s gone either. Yet he’s expected to be traded and we go with it.


    I have no clue about Subban but what you’re saying isn’t exclusive to him. Happens with a lot of players. There’s a logic behind moving him but is there a will to do so? I’m doubtful.

    He hasn't landed a "few" guesses...he's been ahead of things on MULTIPLE occasions.

    And again, this is entertainment for me...that's all.

    I'm not taking anything he says to heart. It's rumors, not solemn oaths.

    I think you're just salty cause he's talking about your infatuation being traded

    That's on you.

    Are you kidding me? I love it.

    I want every fake rumour monger to say Subban is getting traded.

    Can't get a better guarantee he's sticking around than that.

    Not that I think Subban will be traded but...

    Do you think max is staying?

    It’s the same premise

    Dave P (Pagnotta) was on a Preds podcast not long ago to talk about that "story" and he said he never implied that Subban was on the trade block, he just thinks Nashville will, at some point, trade Subban because of his contract situation and because of the interest those other teams have in Subban.



    So basically, it's all fun talk and stuff, but saying other teams are interested in Subban, and it would take a really good offer to convince Poile to trade PK, that kind of applies to every player in this league.

    After that inital interview on TSN 690, people have re-posted it and made articles about it, and said "Subban on trade block after dressing room conflict", that's just click bait material. No insider (credible or not) ever said Subban was on trade block. Unless I missed something?

    I'm not sure about Pacioretty's situation, all I heard was those rumors you read everywhere, but did any credible insider ever said anything specific about it?

    In Subban's case, no insider ever said the Preds were looking to trade him. It just came from people re-interpretating stuff they hear on the radio and stuff.

    Well again I was going off of what I heard on 690 that sunday and to me it sounds like he is back tracking on what he said. I don't remember that interview word for word but I remember him clearly saying the same issues he had in Montreal are in Nash, half the team/management like him half don't. Then off memory he mentioned Feburary and Polie taking calls but wanting a knock your socks off offer. He then ended it by saying PK won't finish his career in Nash (with pretty much a gurantee) but he isn't saying he will be traded this off season.

    Anyways I could re listen since it should be archived on 690, but then Dave was the one who started all this and now he is backtracking on it.

    Moral of the story don't start rumors you want to take back at a later date.

    Can't be much worse than "the darkest day in Habs history". Who was it crying on TV again, Demers? LMAO good times. That year was crazy: darkest day in history, Hossa's gloves, rumors of Carbo punching Price for sleeping with underage girls, etc etc etc.

    I don't know how much worse it would be, I think so many Hab fans have already tuned out until MB is fired.

    Darkest darkest day in Habs history. Planes circling planes.

    You have a good memory, you can actually hear the initial interview in the link I posted, right at the start of it. You got it mostly right though. But then he got interviewed by those Nashville guys and he "changed" his story. Well, he didn't really change his story, but he probably realized it got blown out of proportion and he had to be careful.

    I will listen later, not able to now, but thanks for letting me know my memory isn't completly destroyed yet :) I guess still a few more days till we legalize it if you know what I mean :)

    I guess he plays to his audience. He knows people in Montreal would want to hear some juicy PK stuff, while in Nash they want just some status quo.

    Overall seems like TSN is pushing this narrative, starting with 690, then to their website listing PK as trade bait. Anything for clicks I guess during a slow summer. Since JT is probably not going to TO they have to keep their readership engaged somehow.

    We can't evaluate any players during Therrien era. He would put a player on first line, then next shift fourth line, then benched. Therrien was an idiot that made millions because an even bigger idiot thought he was good.

    It definitely could be worse. Whatever Habs have issues in are hockey related. Whatever is happening in Ottawa is a lot more off-ice drama.

    I felt we kept MT too long and it handicapped us. Keeping Bergevin is apropos to death...
    gonna need a good witch doctor after his demise.

    The amount of heat I amongst others took in the Therrien thread was classic. I kept insisting he was pulling points out of his ass to pad his record instead of developing a team. All to little or no avail.

    Our 3rd pick and Alzner. Too bad though the Montreal media would harass Karlsson over this garbage so he would not like it here.

    Karlsson Weber would be awesome. Weber might get 30.

    Both play the right side. Wouldn’t have a partner for either likely unless our new draft pick or Mete stepped up.
