Habs fan here.

The only good thing about trading Subban to the Flyers in my mind is that I have good shot at then seeing him lift the cup over his head. I like the player and the Flyers are a legitimate contender.

Philadelphia adding Subban this year would be like Los Angeles adding Carter last year. It's the ons missing piece, no longer missing.

I don't particularly like your team due to a lot of rivalry, but that said Flyers are a good team and Subban is the missing piece.

Keep in mind he is actually better defensively than he is offensively. There's been a lot of analysis of Subban in the past three weeks. Offensively he's a borderline top-30 dman in the NHL, or at least he was last year, he gets a lot of points but that's due to a lot of minutes. Defensively, however, he is substantially better, maybe top-15 or so.
