I agree with you, but if our management/coaches were smart, they'd realize that the quickest way to lose a room is to have different standards for different players.

Bergevin was asking him to suggest a restaurant that he can take his wife for dinner...

Diffuse... as in he wants the questioning to diffuse around so that everybody questions Therrien? Good!

Seems kinda weird that any meeting with your best player doesn't include the coach.

Bergevin - "...so, PK, how you doing??...things good?"


PK - "Not great, we're losing...it gets frustrating, Marc."


Bergevin - "...so, PK, you know that Guy Boucher, eh??..what kind of coach is he?"


PK - "He's great, an awesome coach...really helped me out in Hamilton and he really cares about his team"


Bergevin - "...just like Michel, eh??"


PK - "... "


Bergevin - "...yeah, so...Michel thinks..."


PK - "When is Boucher coming? It better be soon."


Bergevin - "...yeah, gimme a couple days...RDS is gonna fry me like bacon..."

Heh...probaly got sent by the teacher to the principals office...Therrien benched him few games back,PK probaly got talked to by MB on request.....I wouldnt doubt it.
Therrien was asked about the meeting...he said he didnt wanna go there..(not talk about it)
Sounds like getting sent to see the principal to me...lol


If this was the case,PK should tell them 2 year deal.....will get him to UFA.

This is exactly the concern I expressed in the MT thread, albeit somewhat facetiously. Still, if I'm Bergevin, it's a possibility that I would be acutely sensitive to in considering whether MT is the right coach to have at this point in time. Neither MT nor the Habs have exactly made much effort to endear themselves to Subban, and this is a guy that will be able to go where he wants and pretty much name his price when he hits FA, and 2 years can go by pretty fast.

You guys are being ridiculous. Subban is not going anywhere. He IS the future of the Montreal Canadiens.

Ultimately, that will be Subban's decision upon reaching UFA status unless of course he's traded.

When Subban saw he was playing with Murray he could not believe it and started laughing asking his teammates who was responsible!

'Mike' was around and felt the superstar player was disrespecting his authority so he called his good buddy Marc to come to the rescue.

Only Geoffrey Molson could write this without any ******** and even then I'm still not sure whether it would be ******** or not.

Also: Seems kinda weird that any meeting with PK about contract talk wouldn't include his agent. So it must not be that.

I love how Therrien's motto is "No Excuses" but he uses PK as an excuse for poor team performances all the time, singling him out and making him a model whipping boy.

This team has so much skill, we need an American coach who understands competition and isn't trying to turn the team into an ethics class.

I don't buy that. I wouldn't doubt it for a second that MB would choose Therrien over Subban, I could actually see the Habs dealing him for Letang. Which would be as bad as any trade the Habs have made in the past 20 years. But I could believe it.

Therrien will get fired 5 times before they trade P.K.

Coaches are disposable , norris trophy winners are not.

Pfft. I definitely agree with that.

Frankly, I've yet to see that common sense is even present with this management team. This is the same management team that didn't believe in Subban during the last contract negotiations and also didn't even acknowledge his major trophy win.

Spot On.

I personally think Geoff should fire everybody under him before accepting trading P.K Subban.
