Do the Philadelphia Flyers covet defenseman PK Subban as a long-term solution to their blueline problems? According to a report from Bertrand Raymond of RDS, apparently they do. Or at least they did.
As the story goes, the Flyers inquired about Subban, a 23-year-old restricted free agent, after the Nashville Predators matched the 14-year, $110-million offer sheet Philly handed to Shea Weber this summer.
Why not just tender him an offer sheet too? Because the Canadiens matching one for Subban is surer bet than was David Poile matching one for Weber.
