This comes just days after Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin insisted he wasn’t “shopping” Subban.
“When a GM calls me I don’t know who he’s calling me about so I answer the phone,” he had said.
“Yes, I’ve received calls on P.K., but I’m not shopping P.K. Subban. I can tell you that.”
Floored by reported #Subban trade. Esp everything he’s done for MTL- Children Hospital, charity events, JFL gala. Nashville is a lucky town

Subban was a fan favourite, having most recently signed on to host a Just For Laughs gala on Aug 1.
He was also applauded for donating $10 million to the Montreal Children’s Hospital over seven years.
