So petty. So vengeful. So aggressively passive. So, so, so...perfect. Honestly, I wouldn't have it any other way. I legitimately hope P.K. Subban dedicates the rest of his career to taking Nashville by storm and using his brand new cowboy boots to kick dirt all over the Montreal Canadiens' good name. I never want to see him a waste a single opportunity to remind his former team that they traded him for (at least slightly) less than he was worth. What better way to bring attention to the fact that the most prestigious franchise in hockey dealt one of the most captivating talents in hockey simply because his personality was too engaging than by using that same engaging personality to subliminally take shots at their irrelevance on social media?
Does a professional athlete going out of his way in refusing to acknowledge his former employer's existence come off as salty? Absolutely. However, it doesn't appear anywhere near as salty as the employer that tried to tarnish said athlete's reputation simply to justify a move that appeared laughably lopsided at first glance. Plus, if you were P.K. you would be pissed too. Sure, he was a little slutty in his search for attention and I am certain there was more than a little contentiousness behind the scenes, but the indisputable truth is that he did far more to help the Canadiens than he did to hurt them. If you were judging by the things that have been said about him by the people that undoubtedly benefited from him then you wouldn't know that, so you're goddamn right I support him cropping their logo out of pictures that are dedicated to those that he actually does respect. Partially because the visual of him Google Imaging "p.k. subban scott gomez", picking the first picture that popped up, and instantly downloading an app to alter it is beyond hilarious to me. Mostly because the Canadiens' efforts to downplay his contributions are deserving of every retaliatory act aimed at proving that the Habs are now the Hab nots.
