Because I hate unanswered headlines, the simple answer is “yes.” Yes it could.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie was discussing possible end-games for the PK Subban/Marc Bergevin contract stand-off tonight during the first period of the Leafs/Penguins game, when he said he figured “trade” to be the most likely outcome of the situation. And with desperate teams panicking about their defense in the early going – Detroit, in particular, comes to mind – who knows what the Habs could get in return. And hey, while I’m mindlessly bandying about teams, Philly could use a little help on the back-end too. Anyway, that’s where we’re at – insiders thinking the PK Subban situation could end poorly.
TSN’s Bob McKenzie says that the Subban – Bergevin standoff will likely end in a trade. I suspect that he is right. #allhabs

I seriously think that if there’s a fanbase that would burn down an arena after a trade it would be Montreal’s.

Yeah, that too.
