08:22 AM ET 01.30 | On the face of things, P.K. Subban's return might be greeted warmly -- though that seemed not to be the case. It wasn't exactly smiles and high fives in the Montreal Canadiens dressing room on Tuesday over the news that [Subban's] contract dispute had finally ended. In fact, the mood was surprisingly chilly on a team that started the lockout-delayed NHL regular season 3-1-0 without the flashy player who was their top defenceman last season. ... Veteran rearguard Andrei Markov refused to talk about it, saying "He's not in the room yet, so let's talk about it when he's going to be in the room." And Josh Gorges, Subban's regular defence partner, steered around questions on how he felt.

You have to think that the contract is VERY tradeable. Heck, some think the Leafs could trade Dion.......

If this is how contracts are going to be under the new CBA just about every contract will be tradeable

Is there an NL equivalant to the olde oakland Raiders?
Because that's about where he should go

Hope for the sake of the team, it doesn't translate on ice.

oh I don't know about all that...I think a dose of humility would certainly benefit young Subban, maybe even turn him into the player many think he can be, instead of the self-centred twit he is now

Exactly ! The growth he needs is between the ears, not the boards.

I give that a 50/50 shot....depending on if he's a cancer in the room and what they could get for him..... if things in the room work out and no team offers what they want....he'll stay with the Habs

Tells you all you need to know about a guy when his team mates go: "Oh! ****!" when they find out he's staying.

Sean Avery, version 2.0?

Self-centerd twit? Unfortunately, that's how it goes in pro sports these days. He's in good company.

I agree but it depends on Subban actually understanding the situation. If he develops a little humility, great, but it's just possible that the experience makes him a little bitter and his attitude worsens. Hopefully, he doesn't got that way.

I've always said that if one must have a role model, it might as well be the best one possible.

Agreed. He's got the very best in that department.
