Sabres might get debut of Habs' Subban in Saturday's game

By Mike Harrington

Defenseman P.K. Subban, who was an unsigned restricted free agent, inked a two-year, $5.75 million deal with the Montreal Canadiens Monday night. Speaking following today's pregame skate at the Bell Centre for tonight's game against Winnipeg, Habs coach Michel Therrien said he's taking a wait-and-see approach on Subban.

Subban won't play tonight and isn't likely to play tomorrow night in Ottawa either. Montreal's next game after that? Saturday at 2 in the Bell Centre against the Sabres. 

Subban is a wildly popular player at home. Not so popular in the locker room of most NHL teams, including the Sabres. His return would make for quite an electric scene Saturday.

With Subban and Dallas' Jamie Benn now signed, the only unsigned RFA left is Colorado's Ryan O’Reilly.
