Holland does not make trades that involve roster players. It simply doesn't happen. Then you throw in the unknown as far as what it would cost Holland to sign Subban to a new contract. Holland prefers guys like Sammy and Bert and Cleary who will accept your initial offer. He doesn't like dealing with guys like Quincey and Ericsson who drive a hard bargain to get more money. Subban isn't likely to take a major discount for the honor of playing in the Winged Wheel. Heck, he's obviously not overwhelmed by playing for Les Habs.

So yeah, Holland doesn't touch this guy with a ten foot pole. You know who needs defense? Philly. I'd expect them to get a deal done if Subban ends on the trading block. They were the team to actually sign Weber to a contract while Holland was waiting to make his pitch to Weber this summer.
