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.
Well considering that guys like Weber and Suter wouldn't have taken a discount to play in Detroit either but Kenny still kicked the tires I wouldn't be surprised if Holland does the same with Subban. Also I think it's unlikely that the Habs send PK to an eastern team. Either way I give it a 1 in 1,000,000 chance that Kenny takes a serious run at PK.
