P.K. Subban resigns with Montreal, Jan. 28 (post #1)

The Philadelphia Flyers and the Canadiens have had discussions about PK Subban. All the details

For example, the Canadian never admit that there have been talks with the Philadelphia Flyers about his controversial defender, a thoroughbred that will always be hard to tame and whose attitude could possibly irritate Therrien . It happened some time after the Flyers had lost the opportunity to add Shea Weber with their training despite a hostile bid as fabulous as ridiculous: 14 years and $ 110 million. The kind of agreement, later equaled by the Nashville Predators
During the interview between Bergevin and his counterpart Paul Holmgren, one of the names mentioned was obviously the young sensation Sean Couturier, the first round pick of the Flyers two years ago, which has shown great things after winning one position 18. It is said that one who most insisted that the name be removed from the Couturier discussion coach Peter Laviolette who sees in his soup. This has not been a problem since Couturier believes that is closely linked to the future of the Flyers. seeking information that another Canadian was not discussed with the Flyers only about Subban has been confirmed . Who knows what is really going on in this strange issue that leaves many confused?
This was all translated by google, so there might be a few mistakes in here.

Also Dustin Leed pointed out on twitter that the conversations are on going, plus Eklund also said the same. Eklunds report came out awfully close to the RDS post though, so it might be him just trying to get hits.


Mod edit:

The tone of the RDS piece hints at continued interest, but it's clear that most of the Flyers' overtures were in the wake of the Weber ordeal, which went down in July.

Far be it from us to be suspicious of news leaked to French-language media about Subban being on the block during the final stages of his contract negotiation with the Canadiens but we are.

So, despite the fact that PK Subban in a Philadelphia Flyers uniform would break the needle on the Swagger-Meter, it's probably just a tire kicking during the summer.


January 28:

The Montreal Canadiens have signed defenceman P.K. Subban to a two-year contract worth a total of $5.75 million.

A restricted free agent, Subban sat out the first four games of this season while the two sides negotiated a contract.

Subban's new deal carries an average annual value of $2.875 million, and will pay the defenceman $2 million this season and $3.75 million in 2013-14.

The 23-year-old from Toronto notched seven goals and 29 assists in 81 regular season games with the Canadiens in 2011-12. Last season was the final one on Subban's three-year, entry-level contract.
