I woke up this morning and it was still true. The Habs really did trade PK Subban for Shea Weber, straight up. As a Bruins fan, I am puking rainbows of joy over this. The most insufferable franchise in hockey has been laid low. They’ve set their franchise back at least a decade with this move. Yes, the Bruins traded Seguin and they traded Dougie and they traded Joe, BUT THE HABS TRADED PK. All the torch-passing and Cup-counting and endless self-celebrating gets put to rest, at least for a while.
As a hockey fan, however, I don’t like this at all. It’s bad for hockey. He loved his team, its city, and its fans. He’s one of the best players in the sport and he was the face of the franchise. He deserved to be a Hab for life. It just isn’t right and there’s no good explanation for it.
I’m considering flying home to attend the Habs @ B’s game on October 22 just so I can start a chant of “WHERE IS PK?”
What’s on tap?
