I get the context in which he said it, but it does look bad on him. I understand the organizational need from the oilers so why not suggest Tinordi or Beaulieu? No he chooses Subban, who at 23 is probably one of the 10 most valuable young players in the NHL. It smacks of an agenda.
It was a Melnik question about the Subban rumours just after talking about Edmonton. He was on a Montreal station so this was the logical response. And he went out of his way to make sure he was not suggesting Montreal should move Subban that it was just hypothetical from the point of view of Edmonton. But at this point he should know the maliciousness of some listeners will distort anything that comes out of his mouth.
