I can not see this ending up very well for his popularity if he trades subban, barring miraculous returns instead. Even for those that think Subban is worth only 2 years and 3 millions per, nobody wants to see him go. Ok, I'll take that back, the vast majority do not want him traded.

So does Bergevin have the confidence, security and most importantly the balls to trade off the most popular habs asset we've had in decades? I will say no.

My predictions: Meehan will request a trade for his client. Media frenzy will follow and Bergevin is going to soften up his stance and make a legitimate offer that will be accepted.
No, he won't end up being that man.

Besides, he isn't obligated AT ALL to trade Subban, even if Subban requests a trade. It's not like Subban turns UFA anytime soon.
