Many Canadiens fans, myself included, wanted Subban. He's the best player, the best true leader, and the face of the franchise on and off the ice. Some can't comprehend why they didn't go with the "obvious" choice.

But apparently, it was the players who voted. Maybe they wanted someone with a more reserved tone, when someone has to talk to officials. Either way, PK will be the team's best leader regardless of the letter on his jersey.

I'm not so sure about that. While I'm sure Subban is definitely respected by his teammates, Pacioretty is the one who won the confidence of the dressing room.

Just because a 37-year-old has one ankle left and hasn't skated in four months doesn't mean he can't steal minutes from talented prospects.

It's not all bad, however. I understand Rozsival is rubbing mixed parts veteran grit, Coyote integrity and invaluable "hockey sense" on the remnants of his horrifically dislocated ankle. Doctors say this should accelerate the healing process just enough to derail 1-2 prospect careers.

Rozsival won't last the year. His leg will explode bending over to put his skates on, possibly as soon as tomorrow, and his cap hit is low enough to bury if he just plain sucks. I wouldn't mind having him around for a few weeks to start the season as a locker room guy/#8D, but I feel you'll have to phase him out eventually if he doesn't do it himself.

Edmonton gives a seven-year extension to Oscar Klefbom, which seems like a big leap of faith for a guy with only 77 games played. That's almost as bad as the giant deal John Klingberg got in Dallas for, like, basically showing up. Still, with the low cap hit, this could be a huge coup for the Oilers if he turns out. I'm pretty excited to watch this thing come together.
