08:15 AM ET 01.16 | On the upside, Montreal's top line of Erik Cole, David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty returns intact, but the Habs enter this season full of questions -- some that will take some time to answer. On Tuesday, [Tomas Plekanec], who has sore ribs, and Petteri Nokelainen, who is recovering from a lingering back injury, each skated alone with Pierre Allard, the Canadiens' strength and conditioning coach. Plekanec is feeling much better and is still day-to-day, Therrien said. Still absent from camp was defenceman P.K. Subban, a restricted free agent, who remains unsigned. Subban's agent Don Meehan sent a text message on Tuesday to The Gazette's Dave Stubbs saying: "No news to report today. We are not close to an agreement."

Does a picture not exsist of PK playing any other team then the Flyers. Maybe it's foretelling.

Maybe it's bc he thinks he deserves Drew Doughty money.?!

as you may have noticed, the FN picture gallery seems rather limited
3 fingers Torts
Selanne Chili picture
Babcock Constipation shot
the only multiples seem to be
Sid (slapping/You're no my father and leaning on his stick)
And the lamented Lord Irk (racetrack/various stages of sobriety)

Montreal wants to give him a bridge deal like Del Zotto (he got 2 years 5 million, I think the Habs are talking 2 years 6 million), but Subban wants his big contract now. I seriously thought that he had given his agent the green light to get a bridge deal done (maybe 2 years 7 million), but apparantly they're at an impasse because they,re just not even looking at the same type of contact. Hard to get down to numbers in that case.

They won't say Slappy; however, they never leave the light on for him.
