McKenzie on if Bruins are showcasing Subban for possible trade

Bob McKenzie was on Toronto’s TSN 1050 on Monday afternoon.

On if the Bruins may be showcasing Malcolm Subban in advance of the trade deadline:

"Anything’s possible. I don’t think they want to do that.

“But I also think that – remember probably two weeks ago? Everybody was pronouncing the Eastern Conference playoff race was over. The Florida Panthers were too far away. Suddenly the Florida Panthers aren’t that far away. Three points, last time I checked, before games today.

“So yeah, they’ve got some people breathing down their neck and I don’t think they want to go in that direction, but it’s obviously an asset they’ve got. The sense seems to be that if they’re going to call him up – and he was called up before, just to back up. They didn’t seem in too big a hurry to play him. You had back-to-backs for Rask and it probably would’ve been too much pressure for Malcolm, but they had the opportunity to play him against P.K. and the Canadiens on that Sunday game last week and they didn’t do it. Now he’s on his way to Edmonton, and by all accounts has a pretty fair chance of maybe being in the net in that game. So who knows?

“But I would think the door is open for anything to happen. That doesn’t necessarily mean the Bruins are on the verge of doing it either.”
