As the news broke within few minutes social media was outraged with angry comments from fans.

Richard Walker on Facebook Commented that “They traded PK to Nashville. This team is dead to me,”.
In an interview Subban told the reporters on a conferee call; “I’m just happy to be in a situation where I can excel and feel good about myself coming to the rink every day,”

P.K Subban and Weber are on long term deals but the contract of the Weber is front-loaded. Contract of Subban is until 2022 on the other hand Weber’s contract would last until 2026. In this way the payment Predators will have to pay more which would be around $58 million to $48 million than the Canadiens over the course of 2 contracts. $9.5 million will be earned by Subban next season while $7.8 million by the Weber’s.
