Friedman: “Extremely Unlikely” Canadiens Trade Subban

(Gavin Baker/Icon Sportswire)

Elliotte Friedman was on Calgary’s Sportsnet 960 on Friday morning.

As part of a much larger discussion on Louis Jean’s tweets on P.K. Subban from Friday morning, during which Friedman believes it to be “extremely unlikely” the Canadiens will trade Subban before his no-trade clause kicks in:

“I think names get thrown around all the time. It doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going anywhere. You just like to know what a player’s value is.

“I will tell you this. Nobody has ever confirmed it, but before that contract got done – or around the time the contract got done… – I think the Canadiens thought about it. I’ve always believed the team was Philadelphia that had the biggest offer. I don’t know what that offer was.

“But at the end of the day, the Montreal Canadiens thought having P.K. Subban was better than whatever Philadelphia’s offer was. But I heard Philly’s was the best.”
