Fresh off his selection to the Canadian Olympic team, P.K. Subban found himself stapled to the bench during the third period of Wednesday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Subban took a roughing penalty at the end of the second period, apparently much to the chagrin of head coach Michel Therrien.

Montreal Gazette columnist Dave Stubbs offered his opinion on the developing situation as the game was being played in Philadelphia.

Earlier in the day, it was reported that Subban will be seeking $8-9 million a year on his next contract

Montreal went on to lose the game 3-1; Subban registered 22:24 of ice time, down from his average of 25:16.
