A hoard of reporters gathered in front of the podium where the larger-than-life Predators defenseman, preparing for his first Stanley Cup Final, waited to field questions during Sunday’s media day. Before long, Subban decided to cut short his session and snagged an NHL Network mic to pepper teammates on more pressing matters.
Subban’s reporting duties eventually led him to Vernon Fiddler and Ryan Ellis, who sheepishly fed into the charade.
Get out of here, Subbie, Ellis said, before humoring a question seeking advice for good-looking players who are undersized.
Ellis: It’s my teammates. I mean, guys that go out and battle with me every day. I mean, you’ve got P.K. Subban on your team: Imagine playing with P.K. Subban. Oh, it’s a dream come true. That’s all it is.
Subban: We’re going to go off-script. I know that you’re not married yet, you have a girlfriend, but Ryan, you must have had a lot of girlfriends coming through junior, with all the success that you had. How did you manage that?

Ellis: Yeah, I mean, it was just models at every turn, Victoria’s Secret shows, all that. That’s more your alley, I guess. For me it’s just, I’ve got my girl, and I’m pretty happy. I know for you, that’s the wild card you can play.
