All we have is a mangled Gionta quote (which, when I read it, again sounded like he was clearly joking about finding Subban a media gig in Montreal) and whispers from McGuire that the players are annoyed. Think about how silly that is.

And it's 100% stemming from the fact that he doesn't have a contract and people are looking for a story. If he had a contract but everything else stayed the same (spending time in Toronto, not joining the Habs in the charity games), we wouldn't hear a peep of it.

It's just...silly. That's the only word for it. And he hasn't missed a single game with his so-called "hold out". So what are we talking about, really?

All this negative PK talk reminds y of the grief Kane gets in Winnipeg for some reason. You'd think the media would portray their better, core players in a more positive light rather than crap on them any time something MIGHT be an issue. Fans not much better for listening to a handfull of idiots trying to sell papers and making a name for themselves.
