Not a Talbot + 1st Rounder thing, or not the absolute optimal deal.
We're talking about PK Subban here. Not an over the hill keeper with a contract set to expire when people will be able to teleport.
If PK is put on the trade market, teams will come calling fast. It won't take you 5 weeks to move him or get the best offer.
You're talking about one of the best young Defenseman in the NHL, a huge marketable player, a superstar potential player, and again, did I say he's only freaking 23??? Which means, he's not even set to become an UFA before a few more years!
All 29 teams will call Bergevin if PK is on the market, and not one freaking team will offer a Talbot+1st, or anywhere near such a small return.
I would hope Bergevin puts him there just to see the interest. When he sees all the GMs calling and the offers pilling up, maybe it would help him realize he probably has something special under his hands and keeping him might be best.
