*I need to preface this post by admitting that it may be filled with bias and hyperbole…that’s right folks, I am a die-hard Habs fan.*

For weeks (and I guess months if you count pre-lockout), I have been agonizing over the game of chicken that was being played between P.K. Subban’s agent Don Meehan and Montreal Canadiens rookie GM Marc Bergevin. I mean it wasn’t bad enough that I was losing sleep or that food had lost all flavour, but as a Habs fan, there was a feeling of dread that occasionally washed over me. A feeling of dread swimming with thoughts of a trade or possibly a full-season holdout.

Even a small and deranged part of my brain prayed for an offer sheet from another team just so we would see an end to this saga.

Well gang we finally have a result, and I gotta say, I’m grinning pretty huge right now.


Here’s some reaction to the deal on twitter.

 

Here are some contract details.

I think Brandon Prust sums it up nicely for nation of Habs fans.

Now I’m just going to leave this video here for you to enjoy, while I just sit here grinning like an idiot and giggling like a school girl.

  1. woooooo. Awesome. Healthy Markov, improved Emelin and Diaz, ever steady Gorges, and now signed Subban… Awesome. The only question mark is the 6th dman, which I imagine will be Bouillon – making this the toughest Habs D in years.

    When Max Pac comes back from destroying his appendix… this team is looking interesting.

  2. Wow, if you didn’t mention it off the top, I would have never guessed.

  3. All this does is punt the question of whether to sign him long term down the road a couple of years, however. Then again, if he never really progresses beyond what he showed last year, this type of deal is what he’s going to get no matter what happens.
