I have a question.

Why wasn't Subban skating with his teammates in Montreal during the lockout? To me, that's always been sort of weird. Contract or not. During the lockout, that didn't matter, nobody played.

He didn't play in another league.

The fact that he wanted to skate closer to home can't be a good excuse, a whole lot of other guys from outside of town stayed in town during the whole lockout except the holidays to be with their teammates who hadn't left for Europe. As a matter of fact, LARS ELLER reported all the way from Denmark and stayed here until he signed in Europe.

The fact that he didn't want to report to the team doesn't make sense either. It was a lockout, and they were player-organized workouts that included non-Habs. And yet, Subban preferred working out with the Leafs instead of working and enjoying himself with the guys he's been sharing the room with.

If he would have been MY teammate, I would have been pissed at that. I share Marc Bergevin's interrogations about the man's character.
