Hockey Twitter was LIT today!
Hockey fans, specifically Montreal Canadiens and Nashville Predators fans, had hilarious reactions to the shocking trade of defenseman P.K. Subban to Nashville for defenseman Shea Weber.
Subban, 27, has become one of the top players in the NHL. Over the past three years, Subban has compiled 164 points in 232 games, compared to 152 points in 235 games for Weber—who turns 31 in August.
Looking at the stats, it’s understandable why Canadiens fans did not handle the trade news well on Twitter. Below are some of the best reactions from fans.
@CanadiensMTL morons. I hope Nashville wins 5 cups before we win another. To choose Therrien over PK? Morons.

I just texted one NHL scout and asked him his thoughts on Larsson for Hall trade. His response was an emoji: 💩

If Subban does go on to win a Stanley Cup with the Preds, Montreal fans probably will show up to the Canadiens headquarters with torches for real.
