PK Subban was wearing his heart on his sleeve today when he addressed the slow pace of contract negotiations between his agent, Don Meeham, and the Montreal Canadiens.
“I don’t think it’s a secret to anybody that I love this city,” said Subban prior to teeing off at the Max Pacioretty Foundation golf tournament at Le Versant in Terrebonne. “One hundred percent I want to be here. I have no reason to want to go anywhere else, and I don’t.”
LISTEN TO ENTIRE INTERVIEW HERE:
Subban was one of a number of Habs who joined Pacioretty for today’s fundraiser. They included David Desharnais, Lars Eller, Francis Bouillon, head coach Michel Therrien, and owner Geoff Molson.
Canadiens’ fans are showing clear signs of frustration over the team’s inability to sign Subban to a new deal sooner rather than later, but the Habs’ blueliner doesn’t appear concerned about the timeframe associated with getting a deal done.
“For some guys it’s shorter, for some guys it might take a little more time. It’s a process and I”m starting to understand that.”
Subban’s message to Habs’ fans?
“I want to play in Montreal and I want to be here for a long time.”
