I think it's a choice, it's not a rule or a "non-written" rule. I personally understand where the team is coming from when they say that Subban should be with them. Technically he's not part of the team, but Bergevin stated multiple times that Subban was part of the future of the team and that he'll be playing hockey in Montreal for a long time.

If I was Subban, I'd be skating with the team, because I know the organization and the city wants me. And there's no doubt in my mind that Subban loves his team and the city. IMO, it's all part of the strategy in the negociation of his contract.

I never really understood why there was a lot of criticism from his teammates towards him, but I do agree that this time, he's coming off a bit as a "me first, team second" kind of guy.

But even then, trading him 'cause of that, this early in his career, would be potentially regretful in the future.
