Marc Bergevin said the PK Subban-Shea Weber trade is the best move he's ever made. The Montreal Canadiens have won two total (real) playoff games and no playoff rounds since he made it. Just under five years since. Yikes.
Nico with the rebound.

My point is that they won way more with Subban than they have with Weber. If MB wants to hang his hat on that trade, that's his business. The fact is that it was a win-now trade and they've been a bad team since he made it. Facts. https://t.co/Y3Qp4ki8tj
Throughout #BlackHistoryMonth, Jamal Mayers (@jamalmayers

Most recently, netminder Malcolm Subban (@Subbz3r0
) joined the visit!
The Subban-Weber trade is the thing that will forever divide Habs fans. I've got good friends that I love who think it was the best thing ever. I think it was a catastrophe. We're all still friends. Disagreeing and talking is good.
it cracks me up that #Blackhawks fans on Twitter are trashing Subban tonight, coming off his first shutout. He's clearly taken the #2 spot on the depth chart and was obviously going to start one of the two games this weekend. ICYMI not a lot of help in front of him either...
Highlighted is PK Subban, a defender, playing forward, a position for which he is not.
About ten second later, he glided to the blue line and gave the Caps space for a breakaway. https://t.co/UXtCbG7Upr
Blackhawks in warmups:
At least we know the Subban/Weber trade didn't affect the Leafs.
Colliton on Subban: "We had a lot of the play, so it's tough, he didn't get a lot early on. Certainly not going to pin a bunch on him. He's been really good for us."
Subban since the trade:
- 24 pts. in 35 playoff games
- 1 cup final
- 1 Conn Smyth vote (only Pred. who got one)
- Norris runner up 2018
- Rinne’s best year 2018 - Subban anchored D
- Price’s best year 2015 - Subban anchored D
The only bigger piece of bullshit is the stories of Weber's leadership. Supposed to be this magical leader and the team has seen far worse than it ever did with Subban.
Absolutely no one:
Fans: But Subban for Weber
I think it’s hilarious how Ryan Murray got healthy scratched before PK Subban did........ 😂😂#NJDevils
I still hate the trade , I like weber but it's not what we needed . Our PP hasn't been the same since subban
With Subban we had fun playoff runs that I will forever remember. With Weber we got leadership of mediocre teams I guess. Every time I think of Subban, I think of those crazy Boston playoffs. Good times!
The difference is Subban is a entertainer and Weber a NHL defenceman . You need to ask yourself do you want to be entertained or win a Stanley Cup
Comme Bergevin a accumulé des saisons de 100 pts à son arrivé avec le noyau que lui avait légué ses prédécesseurs ; Price, Subban, Markov, Pacioretty, Plekanec, Gallagher, etc https://t.co/25MBI3gtob
Weber is being exposed more as he slows down. there has been no change in the fortunes of the Habs. It’s a wash. That trade would have made more sense had they also subsequently traded for a puck mover. Especially knowing from Molson that they wanted to trade Subban in January
He is in love with Subban. It really goes to show he really does not know much about hockey
Meh playoff wins are a team award. Weber is already much better than Subban and will be for remainder of both contracts.
THE SUBBAN TRADE IS JUST A DISTRACTION FROM THE FACT THAT BERGEVIN CANT BUILD A TEAM....THE GUY HAS HAD 10 SEASONS AND A HALL OF FAME GOALIE AND DOESN'T HAVE SHIT TO SHOW FOR IT. MONTREAL NEEDS TO DROP THE FRANCOPHONE REQUIREMENT AND BRING SOME GOOD ENGLISH SPEAKING UPPER MGMT
For someone who says the just look at the "facts" that sure sounds like an ad hominem argument to me. Subban's decline is also a fact.
