[Rumour] Subban on the Block?

Not sure how legit this site is (it has half a million Facebook followers).

 

They are saying that New Jersey May be looking at moving on from Subban and that he isn’t going to be easy to move even with them eating some cap.

 

I can imagine if they eat cap or take a bad contract back, they can get something decent for him.

 

I mean if they ate $3 million of his cap and took Eriksson, I think we would throw in a pretty solid sweetener/prospect/pick.  Even a reduced Subban as mostly a PP specialist gives you a ton more than a benched Eriksson.  I can’t imagine a PP with both him and Hughes on it...

I like Subban but he's absolutely fallen off a cliff this year. I'm glad Benning didn't give up the relatively small package New Jersey did to acquire him. 

Who knows how he would be on a different team... as per the article the team just doesn’t seem like it is a fit on the ice.

 

We can play what if all day.  If we get Subban, we probably don’t sign Myers and Ferland.  Does that pair being more than Subban and McEwan in the lineup  for a similar cap hit?

 

I doubt we move on him at this point, but it is an interesting discussion.

Very true. Something has been completely dysfunctional in New Jersey this season.

If they ate 3 million, then straight swap for LE. If they ate 50% (or 4.5 million) and took LE, then we are talking.

 

Subban has really dropped off. He looked to have started "declining" last season and has fallen off now. He may fare better on a new team, but that's not his value today if they want to trade him. He's in the bad contract territory at this point and they look desperate if they want to sell him so soon after acquiring him.

 

I imagine Stecher would also be involved in the return somehow as he would become the "extra" RD should we acquire PK and they would need to replenish their D. They have a couple of RD on IR right now and I don't know how long they are out for.
