P.K. Subban still has no explanation for why he was traded to the Nashville Predators, but he insists it doesn't bother him.

"I still have no idea why I'm not a Montreal Canadien, and quite frankly, I really don't care," the star defenseman told ESPN's Jeremy Schaap in an interview airing on "E:60" this Sunday, according to Yahoo Sports' Greg Wyshynski.

Subban also defended his exuberance on the ice.

"I'm going to come to the rink, I'm going to enjoy what I do, and if someone believes that I should come to work and not smile and not be myself, well I'm sorry, who are they to tell me how to live my life?" he said.

Subban's goal celebrations have been a source of controversy in a league that tends to discourage overt expressions of emotion, and the blue-liner told Schaap he doesn't intend to stop expressing himself.

He also made the case for individuality in a league with hundreds of players.

"There (are) over 700 players in the National Hockey League, and if all of them sound the same, to me, that's boring."

Based on the teaser quotes, Subban's full interview should be appointment viewing Sunday morning.
