Boston Hockey Now wrote this week that the Boston Bruins could be, or should be, looking at a tryout contract for PK Subban or Keith Yandle.
The Bruins are banged up on the blue line. Charlie McAvoy (shoulder) is probably out until December and left-shot Matt Grzelcyk (shoulder) is out until at least November.
Former Norris Trophy winner Subban, 33, has been short on offers this summer. Why not go to Boston and show the Bruins that he can still be a significant factor? While he is not the player he once was, Subban could certainly contribute on a contending team.
Subban on the Bruins would have the potential to be like Sherman on the Niners where I go from hating a player to loving them in a single season. https://t.co/Tiy9f4qdn8

The San Jose Sharks are another team that needs help on defense. But Subban probably doesn’t want to play for a team that isn’t a contender.
Some suggest right-shot Subban should also interest the Maple Leafs. But thus far there hasn’t been any indication the Maple Leafs are interested.
