RDS.ca is reporting that the Flyers and Canadiens have been taking about a potential deal for Subban. It is noted that the Flyers are eagerly looking to find another top defender aftger they failed to land Weber in the summer.
As the P.K. Subban saga drags on, you have to wonder if there is a team out there that would consider an offer sheet for the defenceman, who remains far apart on a deal with the Montreal Canadiens following a meeting that yielded no progress Friday.
At the top of anybody’s list would be the Philadelphia Flyers, a club that tendered an offer to Shea Weber which was matched by the Nashville Predators last summer, and who lost another defenceman Friday when it was announced oft-injured Andrej Meszaros will be out for a month with a shoulder injury. With Chris Pronger’s career all but officially over because of a concussion, the Flyers have a need for a top blueline presence.
The Scott Gomez era in Montreal appears to be at an end.
According to TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie, the Canadiens have told Gomez he will not be a part of the team this season. Montreal will continue to pay Gomez for the season and his contract will count against the team’s salary cap.
Gomez’s salary for 2012-13 is $5.5 million but carries cap hit of $7.357 million (based on an 82-game schedule).
