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.
and all they ended up doing was helping Nashville get him signed

there was no way in hell Nashville was ever gonna not match that after losing Suter
