Marchand Signs, Subban Next? Leaf Dubbed Worst Team, Northeast Preview & More...

Good Morning Addicts!

It seems there is no actual season necessary for the P.K. Subban, Brad Marchand rivalry to flourish. Marchand signed a four year extension today and right away the focus shifts towards Subban.

While Marchand is a skilled player who has shown what he can deliver on the ice, Subban also displays tons of talent but in a position that is in higher demand. With that being said, many people - okay, many people in Montreal - feel that Subban will be rewarded with a more luxurious contract.

TVA however, has reported that Subban will possibly sign before September 15th at a price very similar to Marchand's.

Habs And Hockey News

- As if it wasn't good enough that the weekend has arrived, ESPN ranked the Toronto Maple Leafs the worst team in professional sports. That's guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

- Our own Fred Poulin takes a look at the Northeast division in his latest fantasy hockey preview.

- Shane Doan has apparently come to a verbal agreement with the Phoenix Coyotes.

- The Hockey Writers picked the five best value picks in each round of the 2012 NHL entry draft. It's very refreshing to see just how many of those picks belong to the Montreal Canadiens.


don't gloat to much Habs were ranked 111th out of 122 teams

I hope TVA is right, that would be a great deal for the Habs. Can't imagine PK and his agent would be too thrilled. We would be paying 4M for a guy that plays 27 minutes on many nights. Most of those guys are makings 6-7.5M. I would prefer 6-7 years for PK but that would cost around 6-6.5M I would think.
I hope this one is true.....but I wouldn't bet the house on it. It'll cost us big time on his next contract, could be as high as 8M by then depending on the cap.
