P.K. Subban, Patrick Marleau and J.T. Miller were on the move Saturday as teams tried to get into position to bring back their own players or add to their roster during free agency.

The Subban deal, which saw the Devils give up two depth blue-liners and two second-round picks, marks the second time in three years the 2013 Norris Trophy victor has been traded.

Nashville Predators All-Star defenseman P.K. Subban has been traded to the New Jersey Devils for defenseman Steven Santini, prospect Jeremy Davies and a second-round pick in 2019 and 2020, the teams announced Saturday.

Plenty of big contracts have been traded over the years, such as Phil Kessel and his $6.8-million cap hit when he was traded from Toronto to Pittsburgh, but trades that include big salaries often come with some salary retention.

This is the second time in the past three seasons that Subban has been traded - Montreal dealt him to Nashville in June 2016 - and the deal gives the Predators financial flexibility to ink captain Roman Josi to a long-term extension as well as pursue a big-name free agent forward, perhaps center Matt Duchene. Pierre LeBrun of TSN reported that the Predators do not retain any of Subban's salary in the deal. The next highest was Weber's cap hit of $7,857,143 when the Predators sent him to the Canadiens.

He's now a big piece for the Devils with three years remaining on his current contract.

But, I felt that we want to give this a chance, give it a good chance, because I think Iran potentially has a phenomenal future'. Iran's semi-official Tasnim and Fars news agencies said America had imposed new sanctions on Iran "based on fabricated excuses".

Subban was limited to 63 games this past season due to a back injury, posting 9-22-31 totals and a plus-5 while averaging 22:40 of ice time. The New York Rangers traded for top-four defenseman Jacob Trouba earlier this week and they selected Finnish winger Kappo Kaako with the No. 2 pick in the draft. Just like everybody else, the responsibility is on me to take the fact that we didn't win the first round. They've got a lot of young players that've got to get paid.

"I said to Josh and David last night, 'I know this is the right deal because if it doesn't happen I'm going to be really disappointed, '" Shero said.

"I just want to tell you guys, are you guys ready for the 'Subbanator?' Because I'm ready to go. I think freshness is good". Let's go, it's on.

During his focus on the Devils toward the end of the video, Subban said he didn't own any Devils gear yet, with the closest thing being a Red Bulls hat.

"I've been through the process before", Subban said in a conference call with the media Sunday.

He also took a moment to thank the participants in his Blueline Buddies program, which helps connect Nashville police officers with the city's youth.
